Pepto Bismal from the shelf at any drug store. It's good for vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, stomach cramps. Also for some reason 7 UP is really good. Just sip it. The American Association of Pediatrics recommends 7 UP. My son is a fragile disabled vet, and he got the stomach flu pretty bad about 2 weeks. When he got where he could sip water, I had him take 7 UP. As odd as to sounds- Zantac 75 or 150 also helps with stomach pain from flu. I decided that it helped years ago, this summer on one of the doctor shows they were talking about how doctors are telling stomach flu patients to take Zantac. One doctor told me that a 7 UP is almost like an IV to help keep a person from dehydrated.
Good luck and wash those glasses good to make sure that you don't recontaminate your self---

Yes 7 up is good too keep u hydrated when u have the flu but they say to let it go flat cuz the carbonation will bother u..something my gram always told me..if not 7 up use ginger ale too... also true on the pepto be careful with it interfering with other medications..good luck and hope u feel better soon!
