It is very difficult to determine the cause of your illness on history alone. There could be several reasons for symptoms of vomiting and may require further evaluation by a doctor. A possibility in your case could be due to reflux disease as a result of asthma medication. Becotide, is a synthetic corticosteroid drug used in preventing asthma attacks. The side effects of this drug include oral thrush, osteoporosis, reflux disease, and cushing's syndrome.
