Question:
I was just wondering if you have any other tips for nausea besides the wrist bands and vit. B. I have been doing the grazing on crackers etc but nothing seems to help.

Answer:
It is important to avoid an empty stomach, day or night. So we suggest eating hourly, small amounts of any food that you can tolerate. Drinking separately is also recommended. If those measure aren't sufficient, you might want to give us a call at 1-800-436-8477 to talk about it more. The call is toll-free from anywhere in North America. In Canada, the approved treatment for NVP is Diclectin which contains Vitamin B6 and doxylamine succinate.
