    i took dozile (same drug as restavit) from about week 6 to when I gave my birth, and it helped. I took one capsule before I went to bed at night, and it reduced nausea for the following 24 hours. I didn't take any b6, but apparently that helps.

    I thought it might not be working, but if i forgot to take it, i would be more likely to throw up and the nausea was worse.

    I have! I used restavit for the first 20 weeks but not the b6. I had the one tablet every night.

    Make sure you take the restavit at night as it makes you sleepy and it stops you being sick the whole next day. It was a real help to
    Me when nothing else would work!

    I took restavit once for sinus (when I wasn't pregnant yet) as its what my dad was prescribed to help sinus. Just try it on a day when you haven't got anything on the next day as I found I was absolutely wiped the next day from it. I took zofran for MS but it is pricey

    DW has just been trying this now. She's had hyperemesis from week 6 and not able to keep enough fluid down to prevent dehydration. Maxalon doesn't do much for her, and gives nasty side-effects. Ondansetron doesn't give the side-effects, but doesn't help enough to get much food down. Stemetil has helped a bit, but a bit cautious about the category C classification of it.

    She just tried half a Restavit last night with some Vitamin B6, and was nausia-free until mid-morning. Out of all the available medications, it seems to be the most effective for her.

    I took one restavit only at night, no b6 and it worked amazingly well for me!
