Resolved Question:

Reference Immodium thread: Oh dear. So I have vomited very profusely the moment I put the tablet in my mouth and swallowed. I don't think it could possibly have been the tablet as it was instant. I noticed the whole tablet reappeared. Please can you advise. Actually I feel rather better for now.

you need to eat bland food like bananas, rice, crackers, toast, ginger ale to help settle your stomach.
