My sister-in-law had hyperemesis and she said 1/2 a unisom plus extra vitamin B6 worked the best for her. (I believe diclectin has the same active ingredients). My sister used Zofran in pregnancy, but I know it can be pricey.

Diclectin (doxylamine and B6) is one of the.most studied drugs in pregnancy. Hundreds of thousands of women have used it and collected data on outcomes. It.is.safe. dehydration and malnutrition are far riskier to you and your baby than diclectin. Toronto Sick Children's website Mother Risk has lots.of reassuring info. I know dozens.of women over at the HER forums who have taken it, including myself and its no problem.

Unknown and ever changing. It's been around for over 30 years. Dosage may change but the active I.gredients have not. Seriously, mother risk is probably the most comprehensive place to get info on diclectin. They even have a free 1800 number you can call for advice and info.
The only real.side effect aside.from the intended.one of making you stop throwing up is that it will make you very, very sleepy. So much so I don't advise women with children to take care.of to try it unless there is someone else in the home the first couple of times. Most women do build up a tolerance to the sedating effects though.
