    FDA Announces Approval of a New (Old) Medication for Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy

    The combination of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), to be marketed as Diclegis, has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. A similar combination was previously sold under the name Bendectin but was pulled from the market in 1983 because there were concerns regarding its reproductive safety.  (Bendectin originally contained dicyclomine which was later removed due to lack of efficacy.)
