Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I am just beginning my seventh week of pregnancy and I am experiencing such severe nausea that on most days I can't eat or drink anything. I also haven't been able to sleep because my nausea is worse at night. I take Diclectin and it doesn't seem to do anything for me. I also try drinking ginger ale and crackers are by my side but I am usually to queasy to eat them. I am so frustrated that it's causing me to be depressed to the point where I am barely able to get out of bed. Is there anything else I could take besides my diclectin?
You did not say how many Diclectin you are taking, because it is important that you are taking an effective dose and at the right times . You may want to call our NVP helpline at our toll free number 1 800 436-8477 where you can speak to our specially trained counselors for more information on how to manage your nausea.
