Brief Answer:
No need to change the medicines.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
This is normal to get vomiting and nausea in pregnancy. Do not change or stop the medicines as these are very essential in the pregnancy. Instead you can ask her to take TAB. DOXINATE. before 20 minutes of taking food 1 tablet morning and evening.

Take care.
