Why am I suffering from nausea after taking reglan during pregnancy?
User rating for this question
I am 8 weeks pregnant. I had my ultrasound yesterday and docs confirmed the heart beat of my little bean. My vaginal discharge (milky white) completely stopped since last evening. I am little anxious to know if this is normal? I had 5mg of reglan which was prescribed to me by my provider to avoid severe nausea. I am experiencing this only after I had reglan.

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. As per ultrasound scan, you are carrying a healthy pregnancy with positive fetal heart beat. Mild vaginal discharge is quite common throughout pregnancy period due to hormonal influence on cervical and vaginal gland. However, it is NOT mandatory to flow milky white vaginal discharge continuously. REGLAN (Metoclopramide) can also decrease vaginal discharge and cause vaginal dryness as side effect to some extent. It will be NORMAL within 1 to 2 days and you should maintain genital hygiene properly. Do periodic check up to your doctor. To avoid nausea, you should take easy digestible foods, drink more water, avoid bad or bitter smell food stuffs. Take puffed rice/ biscuit or dry fruits when you feel nausea. Combined Doxylamine & Pyridoxine like DOXINATE etc can be taken at bed time (2 tabs). You can consult with your doctor regarding this. Hope, it helps for your information.
