      • Feeling thirstier than usual.
    • You have new or worsening belly pain.
    • You have a new or higher fever.
    • You vomit blood or what looks like coffee grounds.

    Watch closely for changes in your health, and be sure to contact your doctor if:

    • You have ongoing nausea and vomiting.
    • Your vomiting is getting worse.
    • Your vomiting lasts longer than 2 days.
    • You are not getting better as expected.
