When to take your Diclectin pills

Treatment
Date: 2003-03-18

Question:
Diclectin Hello, I am 7 weeks pregnant and I'm very sick since 5 and 1/2 weeks. I am vomiting all day long and I cannot keep any food down. My doctor prescribed me to take 2 pills of Diclectin at bed time. He also suggested, in case I need more, to take another 2 pills. He didn't specify when is the best time to take the other 2 pills. Do you have any suggestions? Any help is appreciated!!! Thank you.

Answer:
Women experiencing NVP symptoms all day long most of the time take Diclectin - 2 pills before bedtime (preferably around 10 p.m.), 1 early in the morning, and 1 early afternoon. The pills are delayed release (about 4 hours) and thereafter released for about 8 hours. Often, it there is vomiting, Diclectin might not be kept. Why not call our NVP Helpline for further details - 1-800-436-8477.
