Can I take Cyclizine and Metroclopramide together, or is it one or the other?

I have recently been given some cyclizine for severe morning sickness and it is a lifesaver. However, it doesn't work for very long and I can't cover the whole day with the dosage of 3 tablets a day. I also have some metroclopramide which works but to a lesser degree. My doctor (who is extremely cautious and I had to beg for the cyclizine) said NOT to take both of them, but I thought I had seen lots of other people on here who did take both.

Please can you share your experiences?

They work differently - typically choose one or the other. How old are you may I ask ? If you are under 25-27 I would stick to the cyclizine.

Hi. Slightly different but I take cyclizine and ondanestron together twice a day and have done since six weeks. Now 16 weeks. I have hyperemesis. The cyclizine alone isn't enough. Mine were originally prescribed by hospital and they honestly didn't bat an eyelid about taking both together and since my doctor hasn't had any issue putting both me repeat prescription. Hope you get it sorted but push for what you want. Have you tried ondanestron?
