Norovirus (cont.)

Medical Treatment for Norovirus Infection

Individuals with severe nausea and vomiting are often given medicine (for example, promethazine, prochlorperazine, or ondansetron) intravenously to reduce or stop vomiting. If this is effective, patients may later receive oral or rectal preparations of these drugs and monitored in the clinic by their physician. Individuals who become dehydrated may require intravenous fluids with electrolytes to avoid complications of dehydration. A few severely dehydrated patients may require hospitalization until their fluids and electrolytes are replenished.
