My daughter-in-law asked me to send this query. She has had NVP since the 2nd week! Her doctor prescribed metoclopramine. We are all nervous about medication but she feels quite awful. Is this drug risky enough to make it worthwhile to seek other solutions?
Hello from Israel - Since your question pertains to drug safety, why not contact a teratogen information service near you. There are such services in Tel Aviv, Zerifin and Jerusalem.
