Are There Medications To Help With Severe Morning Sickness?

Share |

Generally speaking, it is probably best to avoid medications to help with morning sickness. The fact of the matter is that most medications have not been sufficiently tested for use by pregnant women. You can’t be certain that a given medication is going to be safe, and not going to cause a problem for you or for your baby. Having said all of that, severe morning sickness can create some problems of its own. For example, if you have severe morning sickness that is accompanied by vomiting, it can lead to hypoglycemia, malnutrition, renal failure, atrophy, and a whole host of other ailments and problems for you. It can also cause a good number of problems for your baby.

If your morning sickness is severe, it is possible that your health care provider might prescribe a medication to help with the severe morning sickness. This will, generally, only happen if you are having difficulty keeping food or liquids down, however, and over a long period of time. Your health care provider may even want you to have an IV to be rehydrated, and maybe even given some nutrients via the IV.

If your health care provider does prescribe a medication to help with your severe morning sickness, you will need to keep a couple of things in mind. The fact of the matter is, while there is a certain risk in taking medications that have not been proven or tested to be safe for pregnant women, the severe morning sickness can cause even more problems than a medication can. In addition, just because a label says “not for use during pregnancy,” this does not mean that it is definitely dangerous, rather that it probably hasn’t been sufficiently tested. You should speak with your health care provider about using any medications whatsoever to help with your severe morning sickness.
