Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
When Diclectin doesn't work for NVP

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-07-31

Question:
I am on 11th week right now but i have had really bad NVP, i was in the hospital yesterday because of dehydration from the vomitting... everytime i think it is getting better it gets worse... I have missed so many work days so far and i just started a new job.. My boss understood at the beginning but i think she is not anymore, i really don't what to do.. I have taken diclectin but it did nothing for me. I am taking gravol now, i'm not happy about that but the doctor told me to, I always prefer not to take anything. What are my options here, work worries me a bit and that doesn't help my symptons i'm sure. Thank you Rima

Answer:
You may be not be taking the effective dose of Diclectin to control your symptons. As well, you should not worry about taking Gravol in addition to the Diclectin as it is safe to use in pregnancy. To get some individual counselling on how on to treat your NVP you should call our toll free line(1 800-436-8477) and speak to one of our specially trained counsellors.
