Nausea And Pepcid Help

jmsc - February 12

I'm 8 week preg and very nauseous. My doctor said I could try prilosec because often its related to too much acid. But, I'm also a nurse and I read in my drug book that its a preg Category C, which isn't the safest. I heard that pepcid may be ok for the first trimester? Anyone used pepcid during their first trimester before? Please let me know, I am feeling horrible and I would really like to try something, even a mild dose. I've had acid problems before I became pregnant, I just don't want to hurt the baby. Anyone with any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

I used pepcid my whole first trimester. I tried tums but I was so sick all the time. I have had acid reflux disease since I was 11. But once the baby started pushing on my stomach I had to go to Prilosec. Pepcid is in the B category-- same as Tylenol. Go ahead and take it so you won't be miserable girl!
