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.
Hello, is there somebody who maybe knows if there is a place in Germany where I can find help for HG (e.g. Zofran)? Much isnīt done in Germany for women which suffers with HG. I would be very pleased if somebody could help me.
Unfortunately we do not know of anyone in Germany who does what we do at the Motherisk Helpline. However you can download our treatment algorithm and show it to your physician so he/she can prescribe some treatment for you. As for Zofran, it appears to be relatively safe and effective treatment for NVP if your physician wants to prescribe it. We published a study at Motherisk where we examined 187 babies of mothers who took zofran in pregnancy. When they were compared with other babies whose mothers did not take zofran, there were no differences in any of the outcomes we studied.
