I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin.

Birth defects from bendectine
During pregnancy 40 yrs ago I was prescribed Bendectin. Caused urinary groos defects in my child. He has many physical limitations & medical issues as well as psychiatric illnesses. What other birth defects beside kidney defects has Bendectine known to have caused? ## My son was born in 1973. I was told Benedictine. He was born with gross kidney malformations , pyeloric Stenosis and as a young adult developed psychiatric illnesses.
