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.
May need Medication: If you have tried dr bryant's suggestions and are loosing weight or just down right felling horrible, you may need a prescription medication from your doctor. The american college of obgyn suggest trying 50 mg of b6 with or without 1/2 tablet of unisom every 5 hours. This is as close to the old medication bendectin as can be and is the # 1 rx in the world for morning sickness! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Options: Morning sickness is the reaction your body has to Hcg (pregnancy hormone). Some ppl get the same reaction to TSH if they're hyperthyroid.

Things I have found helpful in my practice are: eating frequent small meals, having something like crackers before even arising from bed, drinking liquids whenever you can, vitamin B6 1/2 of a Unisom as needed up to 4 times a day. If these don't work then your OB can give you prescription medication ...Read more
B6 and unisom: We recommend taking a vitamin b6 supplement 10-25 mg three times a day as the first line treatment, followed by adding a half a unisom tablet up to 3 times a day. If nausea is uncontrolled after those therapies, then talk to your doctor about prescription medication. Also, avoid fatty or greasy foods! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several hints: Vit b 6 and unisom at bedtime. Dont let your stomach get empty or too full. Ginger root pills 3x daily (buy at healthfood store).
