When to start taking unisom


Date: 2008-03-31

Question:
Hi, I am thinking of trying for baby #3, but i had servere hyperemesis with #2 and have been told it will probably return again. I was hospitalized for most of my pregnacy, and don't want to do this again as i have 2 children to look after this time. I have been reading up about unisom and vitamin b6 and it looks like it's worth a try. I am already taking vitamin b6 but can you tell me when i should start taking the unisom? Should i take it before the servere sickness starts? And should i consult my doctor first? Thanks

Answer:
You should consult with your doctor before you get pregnant. Many women commence taking the Unisom the minute they start to feel nauseated.
