I am 8 weeks pregnant with my second child and suffering from NVP. Recently in conversation about morning sickness with a friend who is a naturopath, the effect of taking an antihistamine on the unborn baby's immune system came up. She suggested that it may suppress or effect the baby's immune system and make it more susceptible to things like asthma. Can you please tell me if any specific research has been done on the effect of diclectin on the baby's immune system?
No, there has not been any research on the effects of Diclectin on the baby's immune system.
