Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

The active ingredient in the medication that you listed is called Meclizine. It is a Class B drug in pregnancy and considered safe. It is a common ingredient in motion sickness medicines. Other medications that are used commonly and considered safe include Zofran and Phenergan. Good luck!

I hope that this helps and good luck!
