Bill Says:

My mother was taking pills for morning sickness in 1964. They were small, pink on one side, and light blue on the other. We don't have any to examine, so I have no information on any identifying numerals or letters that might have been present. My sister's doctor indicated that this might be related to my sister's infertility.

Can anyone identify this medication (and, more importantly, indicate any problems they might have caused an infant)?

This is very little information to go on.

Her doctor may be thinking of the medication Thalidomide, which was used for nausea in pregnant women and found to cause severe birth defects, however, it was pulled from the market in 1961, so there is no way your mother could have been using it in 1964.

The reason your doctor may thing this has to do with some articles on the medication, a lot of them just state that it was used until the early 1960's and are not specific on the actual year its usage was stopped.

But, as I stated its usage in the U.S. was stopped in 1961 and in Canada in 1962.

You can read more on it here:


I really wish I could help you more, but I don't know of any others that caused such severe problems.

Does the doctor have any other ideas?

morning sickness pills mostly consist of vitamin b-6, which you can purchase cheaply, anywhere. they also use it in travel sickness meds.

drug companies make billions from combining simple, everyday compounds, like vitamin b-6, with useless "fillers."

Yes, but the most likely culprit has a huge section of people with the same questions, right here on this site forum under diclectin, debendox or bendectin... One more affected?!
