  • im not sure . i would ask your dr about that . just call them they can tell you over the phone . you can even ask a pharmisist(SP?) they know what pregnant women can take too .

  • Not sure on this one, have you tried other things.. like sour hard candies for sickness?? You may have to constantly have one in your mouth, but it would make sure that you weren't taking something to harm the baby, again, I don't know that dramamine would hurt the baby.

  • I'm looking at the paper from my doctor's office that has Dramamine on the safe list. Hope you have a great & safe trip!
