Hello Can I take the herbal form of Gravol while pregnant? What about the 100mg time released capsules of Gravol - are these safe to take? Finally, my doctor told me I can take Zantac for heartburn and excess stomach acid - is this ok? Thanks!
The herbal form of Gravol contains 500mg of ginger and 2 per day is safe to take in pregnancy. The 100mg time released capsules of Gravol contains 100mg of dimenhydrinate and 2 per day is also safe to take in pregnancy. Zantac has also been well studied in pregnancy and has been found safe to take as prescribed by your physician.
