  • My doc tried me on that during my first pregnancy but not only did it not work, it made me WAY too tired and it was nearly impossible for me to do my job. I was on it for about a week and then she put me on phenegran. They dont tend to just push the meds unless there is a reason, like severe vomitting or weight loss. At least the B6 gives you extra energy so it might help cross out the tiredness that the unisom will cause but that wasnt the case for me

  • well my midwife recommended vitamin b6 and i read that it's been shown to help with morning sickness but they don't really know why. not sure about the unisom.
