Brief Answer: Doxylanate is safe during pregnancy Detailed Answer: Hi Doxinet is routinely prescribed for Pregnancy induced vomiting. Your wife can safely take that. You may want to look into other grand ma remedies like lemon, ginger as well. If she has recurrent vomiting even with doxylanate you may postpone Iron supplements after 12 weeks after speaking to your doctor. Hope this helps.
