How safe is Vomifene in pregnancy?
I bought Vomifene this morning out of sheer desperation. 9 weeks pregnant and nauseas all the time. I then read the pamphlet and there it says it hasn't been tested for safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding. What now?

Studies on animals show adverse effect and toxicity on fetus.
There are no adequate and well controlled studies done on pregnant women.
It is best to avoid all medications in the first trimester if you can.
