I have severe nausea and have been taking 4 diclectin pills per day for the last two weeks ( I am 11 weeks pregnant). The nausea is still so severe that I'm having difficulty functionning. These pills do not seem to be working, should I communicate this with my doctor?
If this dose is not working, you may want to talk to your doctor about increasing it. You may also want to call our toll free NVP line at 1 800 436-8477 for more specific information.
