Unisom and Vitamin B6

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-06-18

Question:
I am 7 weeks pregnant. I have severe N & V. I work 8 to 9 hour shifts during the day. Will the unisom make me feel tired during the day if taken at night and will the B6 be enough to stop the N & V during the day?

Answer:
This combination of Unisom and Vit B6 has been formulated to be the most effective for the treatment of NVP. For some women the Unisom can make them sleepy, that is why it is recommended to be taken at night, so as to minmize the sedating effects. The Vitamin B6 should be effective no matter when it is taken.
