Dilectin should no longer be the go-to drug for morning sickness after new research showed flaws in the research. It may be no better than a vitamin. Canadian doctors have been told to reconsider it.

So if you are Canadian, pregnant, and have that awful morning sickness, do your homework before taking any drug. I don't know if this drug was used in other countries or not. The drug guidelines were developed by a Motherisk program at Sick Kids in Toronto and Motherisk had ties to the drug company.

Motherisk was once a prestigious program which is now "engulfed in scandal for faulty testing for drugs and alcohol in its now shuttered lab". Some parents lost their children because of this faulty testing. Any complementary doctor worth their salt will tell you that hairanalysis is not a reliable test.

I'll be back with the link in a minute.

It's cute, isn't it?

I noticed you were gone for a while and sent you a private message hoping you were ok. So now I know you are back and I'm glad to see that.
