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.
A local health food store recommended that I use red raspebrry leaf tea to treat my nausea during pregnancy. I am now 21 weeks and am currently taking diclectin but would like to find a natural alternative. When I stop taking diclectin extreme vomitting results. I have read many web sites related to red raspberry leaf tea and have found contradicting opinions. Some say it is safe where others say not until your last trimester. My doctor suggested I contact you.
the information is contradictory on red raspberry tea leaf, because there have not been any good studies and a lot of the information is based on people's opinions. On the other hand, Diclectin is the most studied drug in pregnancy and is considered safe to take in pregnancy. Talk to your physician. If it is working for you as it seems to be, there may be no need to stop taking it.
