My 3yr old has never vomited in her life and is rarely sick. Just the odd cold.
tonight she has vomited 4times within 2hrs and has been constipated for about a week. (Our dr put her on the children's laxative liquid and a suppository along with multi vitamins 2days ago). Basically has been out of sorts all week.
She says her tummy hurts. No fever.
she can't sleep. She is just laying on her bed.
At what stage to I take her to ED?
She can't keep water down. Has eaten less that a bird all day. Not much all week. She is usually a good eater.
do I just ride it out or am I correct to be concerned?

I would be concerned but I would probably ring nurse on call before making the decision to head to hospital.

My rule is always I'd rather go than not, and I would rather go in the evening than in the middle of the night... You know her best, so if something's not right then it can't hurt to get her checked out. And if she can't keep water down I'd say that puts her at risk of dehydration, which definitely warrants a trip.

I would probably take her.
If she has been constipated for a week - even on laxatives that is a concern.
Just vomiting is not so much an issue, but if she isnt even drinking water and she is vomiting, that is an issue.

Take her in OP. Constipation can be caused from dehydration. And vomiting and not being able to keep fluids down can also be signs of more severe dehydration. Also when you can get some electrolytes and get her to sip that.They rehydrate a lot faster than water and can actually prevent vomiting if its due to dehydration.
Let us know how she goes! Good luck, all will be fine. Stay calm I have been in your shoes. I know how upsetting it is.

Yes the severe constipation can be causing the vomiting by being a sort of physical obstruction, hence her food coming back up. I would seek medical care.
