Animal studies have not shown any harm in pregnancy. Though there are no human studies, this is a good sign.

I suffered from extreme vomiting throughout my pregnancy. It's called hiperemesis. My gynae prescribed Emex liquid and Vomifene tablets. Try it. Put the Emex liquid in the fridge. It goes down (and stays down) better if it's cold. Good Luck, hope u feel better soon! :-)
