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 am seven weeks along, and have been extremely nauseous all day and night. I also sometimes vomit and have lost weight. My doctor won't prescribe Diclectin for me, but said I can take Gravol occasionally. I have been taking 1/2 pill (of a 50mg dose) up to three times a day (1.5 tablets in all). Is this safe? Is it as safe as Diclectin?
Gravol and Diclectin contain a similar antihistamine. The difference is that Diclectin also contains Vitamin B6, which also helps with NVP. Taken as directed, both Diclectin and Gravol are safe in pregnancy.
