Safe nausea tablets during pregnancy

I am 9 weeks pregnant and constantly nauseous. Is Maxolon safe to use? My dr prescribed it, but the pharmacist is not happy giving me the medication saying it is a potential risk. Is this so?
Thank you.

Dear Nauseous, rather try Emetrol first, it is safer. Valoid, Stemetil and Maxolon is only used if you have no other choice. Try having a cup of tea and a ginger snap cookie before you get out of the bed in the mornings - it may help for the nausea.
