Navidoxine contains the drug Meclizine and pyridoxine. Meclizine is an anti-histamine and a category-B drug. This means that the drug has not been shown to cause any harm to the baby but is to be used with caution in pregnancy. The benefits of such drugs outweigh the risks. You may ask your consultant for additional information. Wish you good health.
