Health Concern From Benedictine

Robyn Says:

I am a 34 year old female who's mother took Benedictine when pregnant for nausea and vomiting. I believe that this medicine has caused me cardiac conditions. I have aortic stenosis, a coarctation of the aorta, abnormality in the main arteries of my legs. I have had numerous open heart surgeries and recently had aortic valve replacement and bypass for the coarctation.

I'm very sorry about your health issues, those are some very serious problems to suffer from.

How are you doing? I hope this finds you well.

Since it has been so long since it was on the market, I haven't really been able to find much information on this medication, but we do have another thread on our site from people who use it, or their mother used it, who have suffered health problems, or their children did.

You can find the thread here:


Does anyone else have any experience or information to add?

I am a premature born child of a mom who took benedictine while pregnant with me. One of the side effects is prematurity. I have been ill all my life with heart murmur as a child, kidney issues with stones, thyroid and parathyroid issues, developed rheumatic fever, gallbladder issues, issues with becoming pregnant. I have had 4 pregnancies, 2 births and have one living son. My daughter was born with basically a shell of a heart without septum or valves. She died in open heart surgery @ 6 months of age.
