He has never been sick a day in his life other than the adhd and of course he is manic because of the adhd meds please help i'm scared to death
If he's so constipated he's throwing up, he should see a doc immediately. There is such a thing as obstruction, and that causes the vomiting. An obstruction can be stool, but it can be other causes too. Constipation isn't listed as a side effect, but vomiting is. Usually not having a bowel movement for 2 days won't make you throw up. Just to be safe I would take him to the er and get him checked. If it is the constipation bothering him, they can clear it for him. If its some other reason for the nausea, they can give him something for it. A child can dehydrate pretty rapidly too, so for peace of mind its worth getting him checked.
