hello... i am coming down with the flu... i am 11 weeks pregnant, and i am taking diclectin for NVP... can i take gravol while on this medication? and is it safe for the baby? if you could let me know as soon as possible, i would really appreciate it! thank you!
Gravol is used for the treatment of NVP, mostly in IV fluid or rectal form to control the vomiting so that Diclectin can be kept down. It is safe and will not increase the baseline risk of 1 percent to 3 percent for birth defect that is present in every pregnancy. For the flu, however, you should talk to your doctor who will advise you of the appropriate treatment.
