I am in my 8th week of pregnancy and severely nauseated and "seasick" w/ some vomiting. We are stationed in Germany and the Dr.s @ the US military treatment facilty here told me to take half a unisom. However the German pharmacist said that antihistamines were dangerous in the first trimester? Also I didn't find the Doxilamin kind of unisom only the diphenhydramine, is that safe as well if I take 12.5 mg ( I cut it in half) twice a day?Actually I went w/ the Tylenol "Simply Sleep" brand ( same ingredient but lower dose and I was able to slpit pill in half. I am also taking Vit B 6 25 mg w/ that. Thank you.
