Hi there! I am expecting bub #4 in Late October and I am already getting nausea (started at 4 weeks) my Dr has prescribed me Maxalon but I am wary of taking it as I seem to get every side effect known to man with medications and Maxalon has some doozies listed. I hear it doesn't even take away the nausea for some people.
Are you taking it? Do you have any experiences using it for morning sickness? I would love some feedback as I have done 3 pregnancies without it so I am thinking I might skip it if it might not help and might have horrible side effects. On the other hand I don't want to suffer if most people find it is great and helpful!

It was only thing that helped me. My MS started really bad around 6 weeks (all day feeling sick and vomiting day and night). It settled around 20 weeks but even now at 29 weeks I still get nausea off and on so I take one and feel ok within half hr.

Maxalon made me feel awful, so I stopped taking it and stuck with the nausea. It made me feel really spacey and mentally blank (for lack of a better word)! Everyone has different experiences, so you might try it and find it works well for you

I was prescribed maxolon for chronic nausea associated with my kidney failure and I had a really bad reaction to it - full uncontrollable body spasms, lock jaw and jaw spasms so intense that I bit through my tongue. I ended up being transferred to hospital by ambulance and being given drugs to counteract the reaction. The whole experience was bloody awful!
So yeah, I'm not a fan!

I took it during my 1st pregnancy for about 2 months. It didn't completely stop the nausea/vomitting but reduced it to a level I could function on. I don't recall any side effects. Haven't needed anything yet (am 6wks with #2) this pregnancy but very early yet

I used it for my 2nd and 3rd pg, it was completely useless, didn't relieve the all day nausea and vomiting even in the slightest. Only thing that gave relief was zofran.

I tried when pregnant with dd2 dd3 and this current pregnancy didn't do a single thing to help

I used it from around 8 weeks to 16 weeks, worked a treat but I had to take it every day before the nausea really kicked in for it to work well.

Ah thanks for all the replies. Looks like I might have to try it to know, does it wear off quickly once you stop taking it?

I took it for 3 of my 4 pregnancies early on but it was useless so I had to always move to something else. I had no side effects, it was just that my 24/7 ms was too much for it to make a difference
