Stomach flu is the common term for a viral infection of the digestive tract called viral gastroenteritis. Most commonly, viral gastroenteritis is spread through contact with another infected individual, eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. A number of different viruses cause stomach flu. These viruses are highly contagious and spread through the fecal-oral route.

Common symptoms of the stomach flu include: Diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, body weakness and aching. Symptoms such as bloody diarrhea and high fever may indicate a more serious infection. While stomach flu is generally self-limited it can cause severe dehydration. It is important to call your doctor if you are unable to keep liquids down, have been vomiting more than two days or are showing signs of severe dehydration (dizziness, weakness, dark urine).
Yes. The first line of treatment for stomach flu is hydration. In severe cases you may need medication to help fight off the pathogen causing the stomach flu. Common prescriptions our doctors write when treating patients online are: Immodium – anti-diarrheal medicine to help solidify stool. Promethazine – antiemetic (anti-nausea) medication to disrupt the function of acetylcholine, a naturally-occurring chemical that produces feelings of nausea and motion sickness. Tylenol, Ibuprofen – analgesics reduce fever and alleviate aches and pains caused by abdominal inflammation.
