Pregnancy, Vomiting (Hyperemesis Gravidarum), and Antihistamines- Don’t Take Them!
You are pregnant and you just can’t stop vomiting. What should you do? What shouldn’t you do?
Since I’m not an OB/GYN, I will say this:
Do call your OB/GYN or other healthcare provider to get advice. There are medications that can be used safely to stop your vomiting.
Do NOT take:
Doxylamine (Unisom, Diclectin)
Avoid all antihistamines as it seems they are effective in less than 20% and over 50% of those that took them had adverse outcomes.
Acupuncture, acupressure, and massage have been associated with positive outcomes.
