Vitamin B6

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-01-11

Question:
I am 10 weeks and have been controlling my NVP with 50 mg of Vitamin B6. I take them 1-2 times per day. I read about this in Dr. Robert Green's pregnancy book. I am looking on this website for another bit of info, but I thought I would share that this strategy is really working for me. I have not had serious or moderate nausea or ANY vomitting. Thanks.

Answer:
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. You will be glad to know we support the use of that vitamin B6 for the treatment of NVP which you will find listed in our treatment algorithm.
