Question:
Hi - I have been taking diclectin for a few days now and it has definitely helped the severe afternoon/evening nauseavomiting I was having and general all day nausea/vomiting however I still feel a general sickness emphasized by an extremely dry and terrible feeling in my mouth and have total aversion to most foods and find it difficult to eat midday onwards...is this all part of morning sickness...? I am starting my 11th week and hoping to feel better soon...

Answer:
Yes, all the symptoms you describe are part of morning sickness, hopefully it will start to ease off now you are approaching the end of the first trimester. However, you need to know that a very small proportion of pregnant women do continue to suffer throughout pregnancy, therefore it is important for you to take the diclectin in the recommended dose of 1 tablet in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 2 in the evening for as long as you need it. If you require further information, please call our toll free number at: 1 800 436-8477
