Importance Nausea and vomiting affects approximately 85% of pregnant women. [] Key MethodEvidence Review Databases were searched to June 8, 2016. Relevant websites and bibliographies were also searched. Titles and abstracts were assessed independently by 2 reviewers. Results were narratively synthesized; planned meta-analysis was not possible because of heterogeneity and incomplete reporting of findings.

Efficacy and safety
TLDR
There is no support for teratogenic risks for ondansetron use for HG and the women treated with ondANSetron were actually more likely to report a live birth and the non-pharmacological interventions shall remain the first-line treatment.
Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum
TLDR
This Primer provides a comprehensive review of the current state of basic science and clinical knowledge on nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, and its extreme form hyperemesis gravidarum.
Hyperemesis gravidarum.
Emerging Progress in Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy and Hyperemesis Gravidarum: Challenges and Opportunities
TLDR
In this review, the historical hypotheses of the pathogenesis of NVP and HG including hormonal factors, Helicobacter pylori, gastrointestinal dysmotility, placenta-related factors, psychosocial factors, and new factors identified by genetics are summarized.
Management of severe pregnancy sickness and hyperemesis gravidarum
TLDR
Historically, the aetiology of HG was poorly understood and it was thought to be caused by endocrine, infectious, psychosocial, and hereditary factors, but recent studies in twins showed that severity and duration of NVP are highly genetic.
Management Considerations for Recalcitrant Hyperemesis.
TLDR
Short-course corticosteroids and treatment for Helicobacter pylori have the most favorable risk-reward profiles of the 4 pharmacologic therapies evaluated and Mirtazapine and diazepam may have a place in highly selected patients.
Barriers and Challenges in Hyperemesis Gravidarum Research
TLDR
An internationally accepted definition and the formulation of core outcomes would facilitate meta-analysis of trial results and implementation of evidence in guidelines to ultimately improve patient care.
Life-threatening complications of hyperemesis gravidarum
TLDR
The aim of the present systematic review was to summarize the available evidence regarding the severe complications observed during HG with a heightened risk of fatality.
Doxylamine/pyridoxine for nausea and vomiting in pregnancy
  • Medicine
    Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin
  • 2019

Interventions for treating hyperemesis gravidarum.
TLDR
A review of interventions for hyperemesis gravidarum up to 20 weeks' gestation covering acupressure/acupuncture, outpatient care, intravenous fluids, and various pharmaceutical interventions found no clear evidence of differences between groups for anxiodepressive symptoms.
A Comparison of Ondansetron and Promethasin in Treating Hyperemesis Gravidarum
TLDR
The response to Ondansetron was good, and there are no reports, in the literature, of it having any adverse effects on the fetus, therefore, it is better to use OndANSetron in the first course of hospitalization.
Interventions for nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy.
TLDR
There was only limited evidence from trials to support the use of pharmacological agents including vitamin B6, Doxylamine-pyridoxoine and other anti-emetic drugs to relieve mild or moderate nausea and vomiting.
Managing hyperemesis gravidarum: a multimodal challenge
TLDR
The aetiology, diagnosis and treatment strategies will be presented based on a selective literature review and it is suggested that general practitioners and obstetricians should be well informed about HG and therapy should be multimodal.
Promethazine Compared With Metoclopramide for Hyperemesis Gravidarum: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Promethazine and metoclopramide have similar therapeutic effects in patients who are hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum, and the adverse effects profile was better with metoclobramide.
Evaluation of Treatment of Hyperemesis gravidarum Using Parenteral Fluid with or without Diazepam
TLDR
Intravenous administration of fluids and vitamins is the standard treatment for women hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum and the addition of diazepam to the treatment is effective in reducing nausea and does not have teratogenic effects.
Effects of Ginger for Nausea and Vomiting in Early Pregnancy: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Despite the widespread use of ginger in the diet, its clinic value and safety profile in treating NVEP is still unknown, and a meta-analysis suggests that ginger is an effective nonpharmacological treatment for NVEp.
A Placebo-Controlled Trial of Oral Pyridoxine in Hyperemesis Gravidarum
TLDR
The use of oral pyridoxine in conjunction with metoclopramide during the inpatient stay and during the 2 weeks after hospital discharge for hyperemesis gravidarum did not improve the rehospitalization rate, the vomiting frequency or the nausea score.
Pulsed steroid therapy is an effective treatment for intractable hyperemesis gravidarum
TLDR
A short course of hydrocortisone is an effective treatment for intractable hyperemesis gravidarum, and within-patient analyses showed a significant reduction in mean vomiting episodes.
