Default Stomach issues - safe medicine?

Hello! My hedgie Penelope is a year old and she has been happy and healthy for the year I’ve had her so far. I made a vet appointment just to make sure she is healthy - a few days leading up to the vet appointment I noticed she stopped running on her wheel and hasn’t been drinking very much water. She also threw up, just once though although she never did that before. She has seemed ok since despite still not being active. The vet prescribed me Famotidine and Cerenia to inject in her for 5 days and I was wondering if she really is fine and just a little tired lately, will these do anything bad to her? Also has anyone given their hedgehog these medicines before? I am probably just paranoid - but I want to make sure it really is safe for her! I’m not sure how many Hedgehogs the vet has seen and don’t want to uneccesarily give her meds if it will harm her. Thanks!

I haven the used either of them but the first one is just an acid reducer for the stomach and the second is used to prevent motion sickness and vomiting.
