I am using Trifexis on my girls plus a Scalibor tick collar. Unfortunately if you need tick protection there is no pill for them, so you get to decide if you want to use a topical that gets ticks or use a collar like Scalibor or Preventic. If you are going to be using a topical flea/tick med, I'd go with Heartgard Plus or Interceptor. If ticks aren't a concern I much prefer Trifexis to Sentinel since Sentinel doesn't actually kill fleas.
As to the vomiting-yes, Trifexis (and Comfortis) occasionally causes vomiting. It is less likely if you give the pill with a meal. Supposedly, it does not appear to be a repeatable issue meaning that just because your dog vomited last month does not mean it will vomit the pill again. If your dog does vomit the pill, call your vet and they will replace the pill so you can redose the dog (the company will replace the pill to the vet).
