Should Pregnidoxin and Doxinate be taken during pregnancy?

hi doc!!! my wife is pregnent, she suffered from excessive vomitting during the 4th to 6th week of pregnency, for which doctor prescribed Doxinate OD - one tab 2 times a day.. Now during the 7 week of pregnency vomiting has reduced but still it happens 2 to 3 times a day. Doctor has prescribed Pregnadoxin - stopped Doxinate. I read on net that Pregnidoxin and Doxinate should not be taken during pregnency. Can u please help if the medicine is safe and does it have any effect on the health of baby or mother? Should we continue to use the medicine or is vomiting normal and it is better to avoid tablets . Please help!!!

Pregnadoxin is category b in pregnancy and Doxinate is known to be safe. Yet there are of course no good studies on medications in pregnant women. If the vomiting occurs only 2-3 times daily and there is no weight loss or dehydration, it is better to manage the nausea and vomiting with nondrug measures. It will decrease or pass by 10 weeks.
