Are Stemitil tablets dangerous? not sure if sister is suffering from vertigo or something else, doctors are still testing her, I would be thankful for any information

Please see the questions and answers in this NVP Forum under the topic heading, Treatment, for discussion of our suggestions regarding treatment for NVP. The approved treatment in Canada is Diclectin (Vitamin B6 and doxylamine). There are equivalent treatments in other countries where Diclectin is not available. For all safety issues on medications please call a Motherisk counselor at (416) 813-6780. To find a teratogen information service near you, visit
