The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I've been prescribed Dilectin for nausea and vomiting with my pregnancy although I'd rather not use it.Until yesterday I had not vomited and now I can't handle it so I may take the medication but I'm wondering what other alternatives are there? Would taking alot of Vitamin B6 help? Thanks.
In countries where Diclectin is not available, 25 mg of B6 may be taken up to 3 times per day (see previous questions and answers in this forum about Unisom and Vitamin B6). You are also welcome to call the Motherisk NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477.
