After experiencing extream sickness with my son (vomiting to the point of dehydration, losing weight etc till 17 weeks) I have done a lot of research on managment. I ended up on zofran with my son but didn't take any medication until 11 weeks (when I started on maxalon) for fear of harming the baby.
After seeing the toll that pregnancy took on me my approach & plan has been different this time. I've been taking vitamin b6 200mg at night every day since finding out we were pregnant. So far so good, got to 7 weeks with barely a whiff of nausea. Baby is well, strong heartbeat & all going well (bar a subcutaneous heamatoma which I'm told should be ok, I've had no bleeding etc).
Anyway, at 7 weeks 2 days the vomiting started. I added restavit 1/2 tablet at night to my routine (12.5mg) with no improvement so far.
I'm planning to up it to 1 tablet night & 1/2 morning (as per RWH recommendations). The next step is adding another sedating antihistamine. How do you function if taking that many "sleepy" drugs.
Is the restavit likely to work? How long until I'm likely to see effects?
Next step will be maxalon again & then I guess zofran but I'm hoping to avoid it this time if at all possible due to cost
