The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I am 11 weeks pregnant and I have been extremely sick the whole time. I take gravol and tylenol everyday at least once. My doctor said to take it but I just feel guilty , I feel like I am taking too much but I am so sick. Just wondering if anyone knows how much is too much?
If you are living in Canada, the recommended drug for NVP is Diclectin. In other countries, where Diclectin is not available, Gravol is often used since it has similar ingredients to Diclectin. It is also safe to take in pregnancy and it seems you are not taking too much. Talk to your doctor about treating your NVP with appropriate doses of Gravol. There is no need to feel guilty.
