Hello,
Welcome to HCM
I understand your concerns.Navidoxine contains Meclozine (antihistaminic) as active ingredient which is usually given for MOTION SICKNESS i.e nausea when you are travelling.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel has concluded that no association between the drug and birth defects.

So.it is safe drug for vomiting and nausea in pregnancy. Do not worry. It is safe for you and your baby.

But the combination of Doxylamine and pyridoxine is the best for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Hope this information is helpful for you.
Thank you
