Could nausea pills be ok to take during pregnancy?

Posted: Updated:

There is some good news for pregnant women…or at least the ones who suffer from morning sickness.

A new study in the journal of the American Medical Association finds that taking anti-nausea medicine during pregnancy does not appear to increase the baby's risk for birth defects. This comes after comparing the outcomes of more than 4 million women.

The only concern they found was women who combine anti-nausea drugs with an antihistamine may have an increased risk for an early delivery.

The drug analyzed in the study was called metoclopramide, or Reglan.
