Medication for MS? 14 weeks


I'm considering asking my OB about medication for nausea. I try to avoid taking any medication unless it's necessary. ATM I take medicine for my thyroid, which is safe, and of course my prenatals. If I have a splitting headache I'll take Tylenol, but only half the dose, and it works for me.

This is boy #2 and with my first the nausea was 99% gone by now (14 weeks) I know it's not always the same, I just feel frustrated I guess. I should add that there seems to by no rhyme or reason to it. I will feel fine on an empty stomach, then eat and I feel sick. Sometimes I'm sick on an empty stomach and I eat and it goes away...OR gets worse! Sometimes I'll eat a certain food and it helps, the next day I eat the same and it gets worse. So I can't win lol But the end result has been I just don't have much appetite. I try to eat enough for a normal day, but sometimes I can't.

I was hoping some of you have good experiences with medication?

Diclegis worked wonderfully for me. Itís for nausea and is made specifically for pregnancy. I had morning sickness well into my 5th month and that pill was the only reason I could function. Good luck!

I had cyclizine which worked really well for me. My morning sickness wasn't as bad this time as last time, not sure if it's because I'm having a boy or because of the tablets but I could take them up to 4 times a day and only needed them once a day. I still felt mildly nauseous and tired but still a huge improvement on not being able to move from the sickness! Having said that the first pregnancy where I didn't take tablets the sickness did level off at about 15-16 weeks so if you can handle it you could maybe wait another week and see if it improves?

I've been taking diclectin since week 6 - it's class A and has been given in Canada for over 40 years. It has been a god send for me. I still take 4 a day, and I'm feeling much better. It was the only reason I could (barely) function weeks 6-12. I'm going to drop my dosage soon, probably around week 15, to two a day.

I had hyperemesis (excuse the spelling) with Emma and took anti nausea meds for it. I don't recall the name though sorry! It maybe made me feel 10% better.

Oh, wow, seems to be hit and miss (like most things I guess) but I think it will be worth asking at my next appointment. Thank you ladies for your advice, always!

I've been sick with morning sickness from 7 weeks through now at 24/25 weeks. I'm taking diclegis it's the only thing that works for me. I still puke at least once a day if I'm lucky, but if I don't take it... i'm out all day.

In my last pregnancy I had nausea from 5 weeks to a week after delivery. Finally at 22/23 weeks I called my doctor for meds because I was over it. She put me on Diclegis daily and I think it was called Omeprazole (It was a heart burn medicine that started with an O). Even though I didn't have heartburn issues, it would help the reflux and I just took it as needed if I had a flare of nausea during the day (and it worked wonders). I tried a couple times to go off the meds to see how I did and it was a disaster :/ Hope you start feeling better soon!

I agree with the pps that recommended Diclegis. It is by far a life saver for nausea. I wouldn't have been able to get through MS without being hospitalized without it. They say it is the same as the vitamin B6/Unisom combination however taking those separately never worked for me. The main difference is that Diclegis is slow release so it works longer. You can tell when it starts wearing off by the end of the day. I was given Zofran in previous pregnancies but it didn't do much, if anything for the nausea. All it did was stop me from throwing up and constipated me (sorry for the tmi).
