I know most Second Opinion readers are beyond reproductive years. But you know that nausea, especially the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, is awful. What gets me is why any doctor would use a synthetic chemical for anything when natural compounds made by God do it at no risk. And especially when the risk is greatest in pregnancy.
Well, researchers are still trying to find a better cure for nausea than ginger. In a recent study, researchers compared ginger to an antihistamine for the problem. In the study, they randomized 170 pregnant women to take either a capsule of ginger powder (0.5 gm) or dimenhydrinate (Dramamine) (50 mg) twice daily for each. Here's what they found.
There was no difference in the effectiveness of the two. Furthermore, only 5.88% of those taking the ginger powder suffered drowsiness. A whopping 77.64% taking the drug suffered the well-known "side" effect.
