Cyclizine 3rd Trimester?

(10 Posts)

Hi all, I was prescribed Cyclizine at the beginning of this pregnancy due to severe nausea (no vomiting though). I was only on it a few weeks as symptoms started to pass and I felt I could manage without it.

I'm know 30+4 and for the past two days I haven't been able to shift this nausea! I thought I was coming down with a bug (I may still be) but apart from the nausea I feel ok.

I was wondering if anyone knows if it's ok to take cyclizine for the nausea? I would assume if it's prescribed in early pregnancy then it would be safe to take this far on?

I'm working all day today so could really do with some relief from feeling like I need to throw up but I can't find any info stating whether it's ok to take and of course it's the weekend confused

I'm still on max dose of 3 a day and 28w. Been on it since 7/8w

If I drop to two I'm very sick and still sick some days in 3

But much better then was

So yes safe smile

Thanks hun. I took one before I left the house so glad to hear it's fine to take (I couldn't see a reason why it wouldn't be ok lol) star

I took it for the duration of my pregnancy to combat vomiting from hyperemesis, it helped a lot but never actually stopped me feeling sick just helped me not to vomit so much, does it help your nausea at all?

Took it for all 3 of my kids so yes, safe, but it didn't touch the nausea, just allowed me to keep enough food and water down to stay out of hospital.

I'm taking it 3x day in third trimester.

Surprisingly I've found it does help. I've had no vomiting at all this pregnancy and have had no problems eating etc it's just been the constant nauseous feeling! In the beginning when it first started I would've gladly taking vomiting as at least then I would get some relief (even if it was for a very short period!)

Last night I debated whether to try make myself sick just for some relief but decided I needed to give myself a slap and stop being so stupid blush

I've taken two tablets today and managed to get through work so think I'll keep taking them for the next few days and see if it shifts. Glad it's not a bug as I haven't got the time or patience for that carry on grin

I have to be honest with you in my experience no matter how much I vomited I always felt sick, being sick made me feel sick, but that might just be me, I've never had 'normal' pregnancy sickness though so maybe it's a hyperemesis thing.
I'm glad the cyclazine is working for you, nausea can be so debilitating.

That sounds awful flowers I had really bad morning sickness with pg1 (DD is still a pain in the bum!) and always felt relief after I'd been sick but it never lasted long before feeling crappy again.

For me nausea is worse than physically throwing up so fingers crossed this is just a later phase and doesn't last much longer otherwise the next 9weeks are going to be a nightmare!

It could be your baby pushing up on your stomach now, hopefully it won't last long. Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well. flowers
