 SO_Pure - Tue Nov 02, 2004 2:43 am

I took some clymidia/gonerah and trig medication and ate on top of it and about 3 hours later i threw it up. Is this long enough for it to work or should i buy more??

User avatar Please specify the medication that you took. Generally, by three hours the stomach should have been empty with all its contents sent to the intestines for absorption and digestion. When did you last eat before you vomitted?
