Question:
Hi, I am suffering NVP high level all day and i wonder if there's a medicin or drug that can help me function normally or makes it better. During this perid i hardy function at home a slep most of the day and have sickness with no relation to time of day.

Answer:
Our website discusses in detail the safe treatment used in Canada -- Diclectin (vitamin B6 and doxylamine succinate). Treatment options in other countries where Diclectin is not available, are described in previous Question and Answers in the Forum and our NVP Treatment Algorithm in February 2002 Motherisk Update. Talk to your doctor. If you are in North America, you call us at the Motherisk NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 for more information.
