Mornidine, also known as Pipamazine, was introduced to the U.S. market in 1959 by G. D. Searle & Company. Mornidine was a prescription drug that helped pregnant women cope with morning sickness.

Mornidine was eventually withdrawn from the U.S. market in 1969, after reports that it caused liver damage.
