I'm in my 7th week and my dr perscribed diclectin to treat my nvp. he perscribed 2 in the am, and 1 in the pm. I found taking 2 in the am made me very sleepy and unable to drive to work-I've adjusted my dosage on my own to 1 in the am, 1 at lunch time and sometimes 1 in the evening if i need it. Is this ok that i've adjusted the dose on my own? please advise.
Talk to your doctor. Usually, the prescribed dose of Diclectin is 4 tablets per day: one in the morning; one in the afternoon; and two in the evening. It seems you may have figured this out yourself -- but confirm this dosage with your doctor.
