My Sister in Law is 8 weeks pregnant and suffering extreme nausea. She has not vomited yet, however it is making her feel really un well and her appettite is affected. She has tried all the usual methods eg. Ginger, B6 etc... and nothing has worked. Are there any side effects of taking Pramin at this early stage of pregnancy? Do you have any information of the risks and dangers of taking this? We would love to be able to help her get through this time.
I assume you are not in Canada, because the drug of choice for NVP in Canada is Diclectin. However, Pramin(metoclopramide) is used frequently in other parts of the world. Studies have found that it is a safe and effective drug for the treatment of NVP.
