Has anyone had experience with this and did it help? Im 13 weeks and Ive been prescribed it today for a week and if im still being sick im being admitted into hospital Really hoping people say it works!
Yep, I took it from week 10 to about wk 14 or 15 during this my 3rd pg. I was in a terrible state and it definitely helped with the nausea and throwing up. I still felt wrecked but not wretching all the time was such an improvement as you can imagine. It took a couple of days to work though and I think it made me a bit drowsy although it's hard to tell as I was so tired anyway. There is another very safe drug that doesn't make you drowsy. I have an excellent OB by the way and made absolutely sure that taking medication was safe and she reassured me.
Hi. Yep i'm on it now after being admitted to hospital. I'm 7 weeks at present. Its helped me lots. Prob took a couple of days to really kick in but now only sick 2-4 times a day and have reasonable periods when I dont feel sick at all. Still feel pretty weak and not eating much but its def helped.

Hi, yes im on this, it certainly reduces the vomiting although I still feel nauseaus most of the time. It did make me really drowsy for a few days, but I seemed to tolerate it better after a few days, my alternative was hospital on a drip, as I had high ketones, so I think this was the better option!
I did, in first trimester in both pg. Still ended up in hospital for several weeks both pg with hyperemisis, but cyclizine made it bearable. Hospital gave me IV cycline which was very good, but I found rather trippy.
I had it as well. I had to go into hospital first though because I was so dehydrated. Dehydration makes you feel worse, so I found that it only really helped after being in hospital and getting back on an even keel, then cyclizine kept me a bit better.
I didn't stop the sickness 100% but it was a big improvement!
I had it for a few weeks this pregnancy - it worked quite well to begin with although I did feel quite spaced out and dizzy on it. After a few weeks it stopped being so effective so tried Stemetil instead which worked much better. It's important to go back to your GP if the medication stops working or isn't right for you - there may be other things you can try which will suit you better. Hope you feel better soon.
