Introduction: Nausea and vomiting are one of common complications in pregnancy. Although many suggestions have been made but none of them has shown a complete effect on the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of ginger syrup and vitamin B6 on nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. Methods: In this clinical trial study 100 pregnant women with nausea and vomiting within 24 hours of study were randomized in two groups by using ginger syrup and vitamin B6. Then the rate of nausea and number of episodes of vomiting were assessed. The T square, Chi square and Vilcoxon tests were used to analyze the data. Results: Results showed that the mean age of pregnant women in this study was 25/48±4/92 years and there were no differences between participants’ age, number of pregnancy, education, number of abortion, job and gestational age. Results showed that the effects of using vitamin B6 compared with using ginger syrup are the same in decreasing the mean rate of nausea of pregnancy (1/7±0/98 in ginger syrup, 1/42±1/74 in vit B6) and decrease in the mean rate of vomitind of pregnancy (0/99±0/7 in vit B6, 1/32±1 in ginger syrup). But satisfaction rate of treatment in ginger syrup was more than that of vit B6. (94 versus 54). Conclusion:Both ginger fresh root and vitamin B6 decrease nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.
