What is Bonjesta?

Bonjesta is a prescription medication used to treat nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (morning sickness). It’s usually prescribed after changes in diet and other non-medical treatments have been tried but haven’t worked.

The medication comes as a tablet you swallow once or twice a day depending on your situation. Your doctor will tell you what dose to take and how often. Always take your Bonjesta exactly as directed by your doctor.

Bonjesta active ingredients

Bonjesta contains two active ingredients called doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride that work together to reduce your nausea and vomiting.

Doxylamine succinate, often just called doxylamine, is an antihistamine, a type of medicine normally used to treat allergies. Doxylamine can alter the balance of natural chemicals in your body called neurotransmitters that regulate activity in your brain. By changing your balance of neurotransmitters, doxylamine can act as a sedative, having a calming effect and reducing feelings of nausea and the need to vomit.

Pyridoxine hydrochloride, usually just called pyridoxine, is a vitamin belonging to the B family of vitamins (it’s vitamin B6). Research has shown that taking pyridoxine can help also reduce nausea and vomiting, although it’s not fully understood why.

Bonjesta side effects & Bonjesta drug interactions


The most common side effect caused by Bonjesta is drowsiness. In some people, this drowsiness can be severe and can interfere with your daily life. This isn’t the only side effect Bonjesta can cause. You can read more about Bonjesta side effects in the leaflet that comes with your medication, or you can talk to your doctor.

Bonjesta can interact with other medications, such as:

  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) antidepressants, like Marplan, Nardil, Emsam, Eldepryl, Zelapar, or Parnate
  • Any central nervous system (CNS) depressants, like sedatives, tranquilizers, hypnotics, certain painkillers, or cough and cold medicines
