Treatment Of Nausea And Vomiting During 6 Months Pregnant?
, I’d like to ask . I am currently 6 months pregnant. But I still often have nausea and vomiting, so I often take ondansetron. It’s only once a day, if I don’t take it, I often get nauseous and vomit. In fact, I was treated twice when I was 3 and 4 months pregnant, even 5 months and 2 weeks ago, I was advised to be treated again because of my condition, which was constantly nauseated and vomiting. So I decided to buy the drug at the pharmacy because I was worried that I would continue to have nausea and vomiting. will ondansetron be dangerous if consumed during pregnancy?
Hello dear Mother of Rima,
Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy are common complaints experienced by pregnant women in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. This condition is called morning sickness because it is usually experienced in the morning. If nausea and vomiting lasts more than 14 weeks or these symptoms are felt most of the day, it is called hyperemesis gravidarum. The underlying cause of this condition is not known for certain, but it is believed that hormonal changes, namely increased levels of the hormone beta-hCG, are the main reason.
Hyperemesis gravidarum should not be underestimated. This condition must be handled specifically because it has the potential to cause problems for the health of the mother and fetus in the womb. Even if you have received a prescription for certain drugs to treat hyperemesis gravidarum, such as ondansetron, you should consult with your doctor again, remembering that ondansetron is a prescription drug that can only be obtained according to a doctor's prescription.
