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 have a history of depression and have managed it since deciding to become pregnant again with an amino acid protocol instead of prescription anti-depresaants. Since I increased my daily dose of Unsiom to 25 mg./day, I've felt incredibly depressed. i don't know whether it's the wear and tear of 6 weeks of unrelenting nausea (which is much worse without the Unisom) or whether the Unisom is contributing to matters.
Unisom contains an antihistamine which is quite sedating,and it is probably making you more tired. However, it would not make you feel more depressed. Sometimes depression becomes worse with pregnancy and you should probably discuss this with your physician.
