*I posted a question like this before but it close and i would like more answers please!!!My sister is pregnant and she has been having morning sickness..the doctor gave her Phenergan and Emedur (its mainly used in Asia but there intoducing it in the US)... and now shes vomiting nothing. My question is are those meds safe fot the baby? and do they actually work or are they a :mind over matter: type thing? i know the doc wouldnt give them if they were dangerous but still im just wondering...what were some things that actually worked for you to get rid of morning sickness..and how long did yours last? I cant really help her because thank God i only had nausea with my son that lasted 2 mths. shes very afraid to take the meds & im looking for some insight please help out! thanks!!

  • My doc gave me phenergen.... I don;t like the idea of taking meds while preg ( just me not saying no one else should) I drank peppermint or chamomille tes and it worked wonders for me.. even sucking on a peppermint worked... and my sickness was awful...I should have bought stock in sonic mints! lol am a big advocate of herbal teas for minor things, nasuea headaches, cramps, etc.. but I also know that medication in sometimes necessry and more effective. i wish your sister luck.. I know how bad it can be.

  • My doctor prescribed me Zofran and it somewhat helps. Of course this is after I tried everything else including peppermint, chamomile, crackers, etc and nothing would do anything to help me from stop puking 8 times a day. On the Zofran, I only puke 3 times a day.

  • I went through 4 different meds while pregnant to try and stop the vomiting. Nothing helped in my case. I threw up the entire 9 months with my 4th pregnancy (including while they were doing the csection!), and I'm now 20 weeks and still throwing up with my 5th.

  • I took 1/2 a tablet of unisom and 1 B6 tablet every morning and it was WONDERFUL. I've had two doctors during this pregnancy and they both said it's perfectly safe and I'm now 32 weeks and the baby and I are healthy and happy. I'd suggest trying it!
