B6 And Unisom For Morning Sickness
Can I take unisom sleep tabs in the first trimester? I have horrid morning sickness and it is keeping me awake at night
Is it safe to take Unisom (doxylamine succinate) throughout pregnancy? I'm 19 weeks and have awful morning sickness, this is all that seems to help.
How much, and when should vitamin B6 be taken for morning sickness? Night or morning? How many mg? Should it be taken with food, or doesn't matter?
10-25 mg 3x/day: Studies have shown benefits of taking 10-25 mg of vitamin b6 3x/day. Take it with food to reduce the risk of it causing stomach upset. B6 often helps & is worth trying but doesn't help everyone. Ginger tea, acupressure wrist bands & homeopathy are also worth trying. See http://altmedicine. About.

13wks preg...been taking unisom&B6. Now it seems like I don't get sick until after I take it. Could it be causing nausea if I don't need it anymore?
My OB said to take B6 and unisom for nausea. B6 is in my prenatal vitamin. Can I add another B6 supp or would that be too much?
Why would my OB tell me to take Vitamin B6 with Unisom for nausea, when the B6 bottle says NOT intended for use by pregnant women?
Its diclegis: Most likely your insurance company did not cover the first line treatment for nausea in pregnancy which is Diclegis. Some Obgyns will work around this insurance issue by prescribing the components of Diclegis separately. You can contact your Obgyn and clarify if this was the reason. ...Read more

Absolutely!: Celebrate! Just stay hydrated, get lots of sleep, eat healthily, take your prenatal containing iron and folic acid, and get your routine obstetric care, which is a multi-step process over the course of the pregnancy. No smoking, and no recreational drugs, period. I strongly advise total avoidance of alcohol, but that's a decision you need to make with your personal doc. ...Read more
Several ways: In pregnancy, it is often a problem to have morning sickness. I would recommend avoiding foods that can exacerbate the problem usually foods that are spicy, greasy if possible but also drinking more fluids. Natural remedies are ginger ale, ginger candies, accupressure wrist bands. Medication like zofran (ondansetron) can also be helpful as well as Meclizine otc. Check with your ob. ...Read more
No: Morning sickness varies from mother to mother. Also, many women notice a difference in morning sickness from one pregnancy to the next. It can vary in severity from none to very severe (requiring medical intervention.) it can occur any time of day. Although usually worse in the first trimester, it can occur at any stage. Avoiding strong odors can help. Ginger flavors help some. ...Read more
Try ginger: I have not heard a good explanation for why this helps with nausea associated with pregnancy. (it helps with metabolism of carbs, etc.)i also have not found it to be effective at relieving nausea. However, ginger tablets have been proven about as effective as anti-nausea medications and there is no risk to baby. Eating foods with ginger helps too. My patients tell me the ginger works well. ...Read more
