I am in my 6th week of pg. I began the preemptive treatment of b6, then as soon as I found out I was pg, I started taking unisom, too. Symptoms have been manageable, but are increasing. I had severe HG last time (4 years ago), and wondered what the maximum amount of unisom/b6 is for the day. Thanks and God bless you for your work.
To our knowledge, no studies have been conducted to determine the set maximum dose of Unisom and B6. However studies that have been carried out on Unisom at 75mg/day and vitamin B6 up to 200mg/day, have not found increased risk for birth defects or any other adverse effects on the fetus.
