Support is Vital

"The support I received over the past 6 weeks helped get me through what has been the toughest time of my life. Having someone who really who really understood the condition give advice helped us through and crucially, at times, gave me really useful information I didn't get from my own medical practitioners. In my experience, HG is such a debilitating and lonely struggle, the more support you get the better chance you have of surviving it" - Lisa, from London.

Pyridoxone (vitamin B6)

Pyridoxone, otherwise known as Vitamin B6, is a vitamin which is required to maintain a healthy nervous system. It has been shown to be effective in helping nausea and vomiting in pregnancy in two randomised controlled trials against placebo (one trial at 30mgs / daily, the other at 75mgs / daily). A retrospective cohort study concluded that pyridoxine monotherapy had no increased risk for major malformations. There are no apparent side effects for doses under 50mg per day.

Current research supports a dose of 10mg 1 tablet 4 x per day.
