i was advised to take Diclectin 2 before bedtime, 1 in the morning and 1 in the mid day. I tried but it even maked me wose, i felt more drowsy and sleep. I am working and i cant stand this anymore so i stopped. I am fine in the morning until 4 PM I tried to eak the meals a long as its not cooked at home, i usually order in a restaurant and its expensive stuff, in order for me to eat. Then after 4 PM, when i get home I am rushing to throw up and I am miserable until bedtime. I am on my 11th week now, I lost 7 lbs and in order to give my baby a supplement i kept taking Materna. Can you please advise what to do during the nights to avoid this misery.
For information please call our NVP Helpline, 1-800-436-8477 open week days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Until then, a few brief remarks based on your comments:
1. If your symptoms are mostly starting in the late afternoon, you may not need to take 4 pills of Diclectin each day. Since the pills are delayed release by approximately 4 hours, one pill at midday might help you for the latter part of the day.
2. Most women benefit from eating small amounts of uncooked food every hour or so, in order to keep something in the stomach day or night and at all times. They also avoid large amounts of food. Meals are therefore eliminated (along with the need to order out all the time). Food and liquids should also be taken separately.
