Unisom and Vit. B6

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-03-01

Question:
I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant and started taking Unisom 12.5 mg along with 25mg B6, 2 days ago, 3 times a day. It doesn't seem to be helping my morning at all. Can I take more? or is this the maximum dosage? I am not in Canada to take Dicletin.

Answer:
Published studies have found that doses to a maximum per day of 75mg Unisom and 150mg Vitamin B6, did not increase the risk for adverse effects on the infants.
