I need your advice! My friend is pregnant with her second baby and is much more sick with this one than she was with her first. She's positively miserable. The Dr. gave her Phenergan which helps a little but makes her totally loopy. She has an Rx for Zofram (sp?) but its $80 for 12 pills and she cannot afford that. In her first pregnancy she OD'd on Ginger to the point that it made her sick so she doesn't want to try it again.

I am hoping you can recommend some homeopathics and other remedies that might be helpful.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

This is great:

Solaray Morning Ease
Many cases of morning sickness are exacerbated by a Vit B deficiency. Solaray's supplement has that plus red raspberry leaf (a uterine toner recommended during pg), and safe-to-use herbs which can help combat nausea.

Also Nux Vomica can be helpful -- it's a homeopathic. During pregnancy it's good to use pellet form if you can. Don't take with any food nor liquid nor mint products. Don't touch the pellets as the heat from your hand can interfere with the remedy -- Boiron makes a great one with a screw top dispenser. Tastes like sugar.

Peppermint gum helped me a lot too. Zofran made me terribly constipated. Phernergan made me sleepy. But I had food poisoning at one point and both were a godsend.

I have a friend who swore by lemon oil -- she carried it in her purse and would sniff it when she started feeling nauseated. I hate lemon oil but oranges smelled lovely to me. Tell your friend to try diff citrusy things and see if that helps.

Also, eat small portions OFTEN as nausea is always worse on am empty tum.

Sorry for your friend. HTH!

Take a really good supplement of b vitamins (all of them) and up her iron intake. I love Floradix plus iron for morning sickness.

High quality, high doses of B-complex helped me a hundred times more than anything ever has, in all 4 pregnancies.

Also, if you do an Advanced Search for morning sickness, select "in the titles only" and you will get so many useful threads.
