Nausea in the first trimester? Try this

NAUSEA and vomiting are common in the first trimester of pregnancy. Therapeutic Guidelines: Gastrointestinal (TG) says most women can manage their symptoms without drugs.

Avoiding spicy food and eating small, frequent, low-fat, but high-carbohydrate meals is recommended. Cold drinks or ice chips can be used to maintain hydration. Other therapies include ginger. 

When non-drug therapies are ineffective, TG recommends pyridoxine plus doxylamine. If symptoms persist, add another oral anti-emetic, such as  metoclopramide
