Say it ain’t so!
On Tuesday, it was reported that Kim Kardashian West was forced to take down a promotional pic for a brand of morning sickness pills on her Instagram account after the Food and Drug Administration deemed her post misleading.
The brunette beauty took to the picture (above) sharing site back in July to endorse the morning sickness tablets, Diclegis. However, the KUWTK star has since deleted the post.
Initially, she wrote:
“OMG. Have you heard about this? As you guys know my #morningsickness has been pretty bad. I tried changing things about my lifestyle, like my diet, but nothing helped, so I talked to my doctor. He prescribed me #Diclegis, I felt a lot better and most importantly, it’s been studied and there was no increased risk to the baby. I’m so excited and happy with my results that I’m partnering with Duchesnay USA to raise awareness about treating morning sickness. If you have morning sickness, be safe and sure to ask your doctor about the pill with the pregnant woman on it and find out more www.diclegis.com; www.DiclegisImportantSafetyInfo.com “
So fucking sick today on all levels!!!!! UGHHHHHHHHH I can’t deal!!!!!!!!!! Praying I get through the day!

Nonetheless, the FDA was not all too pleased with Miz Kardashian’s glowing review of the product.
Officials mailed a letter to Duchesnay (the company that made the drug)’s executive vice president Eric Gervais, which stated:
“The Office of Prescription Drug Promotion├óΓé¼┬ªhas reviewed the Kim Kardashian Social Media Post. The social media post is false or misleading in that it presents efficacy claims for DICLEGIS, but fails to communicate any risk information.”
Apparently Kimmy Kakes’ lack of listed side effects for the supplement has the government organization in a tizzy.
“…violations are concerning from a public health perspective because they suggest the DICLEGIS is safer than has been demonstrated.”
Oh no! Nonetheless, North West‘s mommy originally learned about the meds from her own personal OB-GYN. Hmm, how inneresting. So this was easily all one big mistake.
Regardless, it appears the corporation is taking the fall for the social media hiccup.
It was reported:
“Duchesnay USA takes its regulatory responsibilities very seriously, and acknowledges that its communications, including in social media as in this particular instance, need to be in accordance with applicable rules and regulations”
Despite all the drama, it seems that the pregnant fashionista will still sponsor the company and likely have a replacement post up very soon├óΓé¼┬ª Stay tuned!
