Can someone please help me figure out some remedies for being sick all the time during pregnancy and if I need to travel can anyone suggest something that might make it easier on my stomach, which lurches even at the thought of being in a car. Thanks A mom to be.
Since it appears that you are contacting us from the UK, we have 3 suggestions:
1) Please see the questions and answers below for information about Diclectin, the treatment available in Canada. If this medication is not available where you are, talk to your doctor about using Vitamin B6 and doxylamine succinate
2) For a travel medication, you or your doctor could visit Entis on-line at http://www.ncl.ac.uk/pharmsc/entis.htm ENTIS is the teratology info service in Europe.
3) If your NVP symptoms are severe, you might want to refer your question to email@example.com. Dr. Gadsby has long been associated with NVP and the Motherisk program, and might be able to provide information.
