If you are concerned about taking medication for your nausea and vomiting, ask your maternity care provider about your options.
If food and lifestyle changes do not help, or if you have severe nausea and vomiting, you may need medical treatment. There are safe medications you can take to treat your nausea and vomiting.
- Diclectin is a prescription medication that is a combination of doxylamine (an antihistamine) and pyridoxine (vitamin B6). Health Canada has approved it as a safe (for you and your baby) and effective medication to treat nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
- Additional medications can be prescribed if Diclectin does not help your nausea and vomiting.
- Talk to your maternity care provider before taking any medications, over-the-counter treatment or herbal remedies.
