Science Reveals 5 Remedies for Morning Sickness From ginger to chemo medicine By Michael Harthorne, Newser Staff Posted Oct 4, 2016 4:04 PM CDT 8 comments Comments (iStock) (iStock) (Newser) – Despite the fact that up to 80% of pregnant women experience morning sickness, the FDA has yet to approve any drugs that specifically treat it, Live Science reports. So for the sake of nauseous moms-to-be everywhere, researchers reviewed studies on five morning sickness remedies. Here's what they found: Ginger: 17 studies largely show ginger works for mild morning sickness symptoms, regardless of how much is taken or in what form it's taken. Vitamin B6: 14 clinical trails appear to show B6 reduced morning-sickness nausea better than a placebo. Antihistamines: Studies have shown antihistamines, especially when combined with vitamin B6, can improve morning-sickness symptoms. Prescription drugs: While their safety for the fetus is unclear, prescription drugs—particularly one used to prevent nausea in chemo patients—appear to be effective for mild to severe morning sickness. Acupressure: Several studies have shown applying pressure to a spot on the "inside of the arm about one-sixth of the distance up from the wrist" can effectively lessen the symptoms of morning sickness.
