  • I always took mine at night just before bed. I could then sleep through the time period for them making me feel ill.

  • I always ate a little something before taking them. Taking them on an empty stomache was the thing that made me sick.

  • YOu can ask your doc for a liquid version... those are generally easier on the tummy. Or take them right after you eat something. Or grind them up in something... GL

  • Ask for a different one. My doc prescribed one that never bothered me and when I switched pharmacies they changed to a generic or some other brand and I was so ill I had them call the old pharmacy and order what they had! I didn't realize there could be such a huge difference between brands.

  • You can try a chewable or gummy for the first few morning sickness months

  • I take mine at night, usually after eating something. I know some women use Flintstone vitamins or gummies instead of prenatals.

  • I would take mine at night, eat a cracker, brush my teeth and go immediately to bed. That was the only way I could keep them down!
