Help me get over food poisoning.

I had the worst food poisoning ever on a red-eye flight from NY and ended up throwing up about ten times at 2-6 in the morning, depending on how you're counting. (In case it helps, I had a glass of red wine about an hour before my flight, then some chamomile tea and two melatonin pills to go to sleep; earlier that evening I had a bunch of Chinese food, which my family shared--I haven't checked to see if they're sick.) Anyways, I took the day off yesterday and this morning I felt better. I'm at work right now but I feel pretty awful--weak, nauseous, vaguely headachey. I haven't been eating very much and have been drinking gatorade, but I don't like having to feel non-functional and useless. Is there anything I can do to speed this up?
