This study examined the role of Vitamin B6 in the prevalence and severity of the nausea and vomiting associated with early pregnancy. Participants were interviewed as to their experiences with nausea and vomiting and their vitamin supplementation usage. The results suggested that the use of a multivitamin helped to reduce the number of vomiting episodes during morning sickness, and also helped to reduce weight loss associated with vomiting.|
