The only thing that EVER worked for me was this stuff called Herbal AntiEmetic by this company called Elk Haven Herbals. I tried EVERYTHING else.

Eat something sweet and then something high in protein. Duh. That's what I did and it saved me from being miserable. Hemp seeds are amazing for protein.

I wonder which pharmacy with big money has prompted this? Talk about a comeback: A treatment pulled off the market 30 years ago has won Food and Drug Administration approval again as the only drug specifically designated to treat morning sickness. That long-ago safety scare, prompted by hundreds of lawsuits claiming birth defects, proved to be a false alarm.

This is the same drug pulled off the market 30 years ago for causing birth defects. Now, suddenly, the FDA has decided that all those law suits were just a false alarm? My mother took the drug and I was born without the lower joint in my thumb (where the thumb hooks onto my hand). I took the drug with my first pregnancy and my sons toes were deformed. And now it's suddenly okay? I recommend to my doula clients that they use ginger/mint tea with raw honey for nausea. This works great for any type of nausea and vomiting, even stops vomiting during labor. I would be very weary of any drugs that are given in pregnancy.

Top 5 Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness : http://redeemingchildbirth.com/morning-sickness/ As a mom of six, who was extremely sick every pregnancy... I would always advise younger moms to first try the natural remedies... and continue to try them throughout her pregnancy... not to rely on the meds... but in circumstances where it is beyond control and one has no option but to be "on their game"... then and only then should one take medication during pregnancy. The FDA is untrustworthy in my opinion, and every women needs to introspectively make the decisions on medication with knowledge, wisdom, and the counselor of older women gone before as well as doctors who have a knowledge of such natural remedies. The truth is that many {not all but many} doctors do not like to seem uneducated and will often discount anything that is not included in their training... so seek out professional advise from those who are familiar and trained in dealing with morning sickness naturally.

Stop putting your trust in drugs and go for the natural remedies all of the time. Apples and oranges are good and also u used coriander leaf mixed in with the food which always made me keep it down. The sickness is a deep cleansing of ones liver and actually really beneficial.
