The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
My fiance is 6 weeks pregnant and we just recently returned from the ER because of dehydration. They wrote her a script for Reglan (Metoclopramide) and I want to know if it is safe, and its potential harmful side-effects?
Please see the Motherisk treatment algorithm on this website. It lists Reglan as one of the options for treatment of NVP/HG. To ascertain its safety, please speak to a Motherisk counselor at (416) 813-6780. You may also wish to consult a teratogen service in your area. To find one go to the OTIS website. For further information on how to deal with NVP symptom, call the Motherisk NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477.
