Unisom and gravol for NVP

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-12-20

Question:
i am taking 1/2 a unisom in the mornings and evenings and it helps a little, but sometimes i still feel really nauseous. someone suggested i get some gravol and take that - can i take it as well as the unisom or do i take it instead of the unisom? also, i have the gravol long lasting caplets (100mg dimenhydrinate) - should i be taking the regular gravol instead? thanks

Answer:
Talk to your doctor about proper doses. The standard dose is 4 tab/day, so you are way under the recommended dose. You can also take gravol when necessary in any formulation, with or instead of the Unisom as they are in the same class of drugs.
