Feedback:
For pregnant women, taking pyridoxine (vitamin B6) 30 to 75 mg daily in three divided doses with or without the antihistamine doxylamine 12.5 mg every 8 hours as needed is considered a first-line treatment option that is safe and effective. Phenergan is not a first-line treatment for morning sickness. Benadryl and vitamin E are not used to treat nausea.
