Morning sickness drug available again

A drug once taken by millions of pregnant women to treat morning sickness is available again.

Bendectin was pulled off the market 30 years ago after hundreds of lawsuits blamed the drug for birth defects. But this safety scare turned out to be a false alarm.

The Food and Drug Administration approved a new version of the drug, called Diclegis, and it will be available by prescription beginning in June.
