Unisom and B6 for morning sickness

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-10-01

Question:
Hello, My hubby and I are starting to talk about another baby. We have a 15 month old son. I was sick with him until I was about 24 weeks. Some days I vomited up to 5X. From my understanding, Diclectin is still not available in the US. Are you able to tell me what dosage of Unisom & B6 I should take to get the same relief as I would from Diclectin? I would like to share this info with my OB to get her opinion before I consider taking anything, should we get pregnant soon.Thank you!

Answer:
You are correct, Diclectin is still not available in the US and women are substituting with Unisom and Vitamin B6. You can go to your pharmacist to get this information, or call our toll free (1 800 436-8477) Motherisk NVP Helpline
