User rating for this question
Hi, my wife is now completing 19th week of pregnancy and single live intrauterine baby has been appreciated by fhr 154 bpm at 16th week ultrasoun. Also no major anamoly has been detected. My wife didn't experience morning sickness in early pregnancy. However, she has started vomitting now at 19th week associated with GERD. My question is, whether the drugs like Festal N, Decolic, Spasmoproxyvon and Niksium are safe at this time. She has been sick as she can't take any food, everything is vommitted. Please help.
