Vomiting In Pregnancy

This reaches a peak at 10-11 weeks and usually resolves by 13-14 weeks of gestation. Nausea alone does not require treatment.

Rarely, a decision is taken to use a drug, and then a histamine 11, receptor antagonist or a phenothiazine, e.g. promethazine (see above) is preferred. Although pyridoxine deficiency has not been shown to complicate simple pregnancy vomiting, it may occur in hyperemesis gravidarum which requires i.v. fluids and multivitamin supplement.
