Morning sickness drug approved, back on market

Pregnancy morning sickness

A drug once taken by millions of pregnant women to treat morning sickness will be available once again.

Bendectin was pulled off the market 30 years ago after hundreds of lawsuits blamed the drug for birth defects.

This safety scare turned out to be a false alarm.

Now, the FDA has approved a new version of the drug, Diclegis, and it will be available by prescription beginning in June.
