Question:
what can i do to get rid of the nausea all day long i have tried gingerroot tea i have tried eating small meals frequently i have tried rootbeer, gingerale and vitamin b6 i have even tried a homeopathic remedy of nux vomica

Answer:
All of the things you have tried so far unsuccessfully to get rid of your nausea might have helped a bit, but often NVP symptoms can only be relieved with treatment. In Canada, Diclectin (containing 10 mg of vitamin B6 and 10 mg of doxylamine succinate) is the safe and approved medication. Please call our NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 for more information or view the previous questions and answers below for suggestions on what to do where Diclectin is not yet available.
