Answer:
If the treatment for NVP did not work and you feel that the heartburn and stomach pain are the main problem, please talk to your doctor who might prescribe an antacid medication and also rule out the possibility that you could be H. Pylori positive.

Please call our Helpline 1800 436 8477 for more information on ways to deal with the symptoms and also vitamin use.
