I would like some more information about morining sickness. What are the side efffect from morning sickness?
This is a very broad response to a very broad question. Basically, the fetus is not expected to be affected by typical NVP. Side effects for the mother vary from typical morning sickness involving nausea and vomiting in the morning, to more severe symptons such as vomiting and/or retching all day, everyday for weeks. Safe treatment is available for NVP. In Canada, the only approved drug is Diclectin (containing 10 mg of Vitamin B6 and 10 mg of doxylamine succinate). For more detailed information please contact our NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477.
