I'm a Canadian living in China for the first 4 months of my pregnancy. Ill be going back to Canda after that.. They don't offer any anti nauseas medicine here especially not for pregnant women. I can't do anything cause i constantly feel sick but other then when this first started this morning sickness ( i got really sick.. vomitted but there was no relief) i've felt sick but no vomitting. I can't take much more of this. I have a bottle of gravol here with 7 pills left.. I save them for when i need to work to try and get through the day a little easier. What can i do.? If there something thats available here? My uncle- in- law in a doctor here however he says that there is nothing and it's only 3 months.. I've read the treatment algorithm, however i'm not sure it can help me here other then trying to somply take B6. Maybe in that big medical book you can look up which medicine is available here that i could ask for do make myself a little more comfortable.
Unfortunately,we do not know what drugs are available in China. The best thing you can do is take the algorithm to your physician as all of the drug names are generic, which means they are the same name all over the world and he would know what is available in China. For example, Gravol is called dimenhydrinate. Many women with NVP from all over the world have done this and have found a drug they can use that is available in the country they are living.
