Too sick to do anything but lay in bed

CCoPE
Date: 2006-06-08

Question:
Iam 18 years old, and yes I screwed up and just had to go and get pregnant. I hate it, I honestly cant take it anymore. I am very ill and I started taking diclectin today. Ive lost 13 pounds in 5 days and i can't do anything but lay in bed and stare at my wall. Nothing stays down and I am so very very weak.... I need help

Answer:
Sorry to hear that you are feeling so badly, however you should start to feel better soon after starting the Diclectin. Make sure that you are taking the right dose of one tablet in the morning and afternoon and 2 in the evening. You may also want to call our toll free number at 1 800 436-8477 and speak to our specially trained counselors who understand what you are going through and will give you other tips that may further help you during this time.
