Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I have been feeling very nauseous lately and have consequently taken 4 Gravol pills within the past three days. I have just discovered that I am pregnant (about 4 weeks) and have heard that Gravol is contraindicated during pregnancy, but am unaware as to why. Could you please inform me as to the consequences of my actions?
Women who are suffering from NVP have safe, effective treatments available to them. Studies have found that it is safe to take Gravol for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. If you are living in Canada, there is a drug called Diclectin that is specifically recommended for pregnant women. You will need a prescription from your physician. This drug is not available in the USA.
