Can Diclegis cause cramping/spotting in a pregnant woman?

Not likely, see doc: Diclegis is a recently FDA approved medication for nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. However the components, Vitamin B12 and Unisom (the sleep medication) have Ben used together for many decades safely it seems for the same problem.

Given your age, I suggest a GYN exam, female hormone and thyroid testing, PAP smear and if needed a uterine sampling biopsy. Please do not ignore these symptoms. You may also require a transvaginal ultrasound. ...Read more
