Expatriate health insurance customers who are struggling with sickness during pregnancy might want to talk to their doctor about taking antihistamines.
The drugs are recommended by National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence antenatal care guidelines.
They claim that women who request or require treatment for severe nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP) should be offered antihistamines by their doctor.
A review recently published in the journal the Obstetrician & Gynaecologist found that NVP can significantly impact a woman's life when untreated.
Indeed, some people reported symptoms of depression, others had problems in their relationship and some even considered terminating the pregnancy if they are unable to handle the symptoms of NVP.
Jason Waugh, editor-in-chief of the journal, commented: "This review looks back over a number of important studies assessing the use of different treatments and highlights the need for pre-emptive treatment.
"Severe symptoms of the condition can lead to women being unable to undertake their normal day-to-day activities."
