Many people know what triggers their cyclic vomiting episodes. Avoiding those triggers can reduce the frequency of episodes.

If episodes occur more than once a month or require hospitalization, your doctor may recommend preventive medicine. Lifestyle changes also may help, including:

  • Getting adequate sleep
  • Downplaying the importance of upcoming events because excitement can be a trigger
  • Avoiding trigger foods, such as cheese and chocolate
  • Eating three small meals and three snacks daily at regular times
