The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I had extreme HG with my first pregnancy, and am planning on trying for baby #2 in a month or so. I was given Diclectin with my first pregnancy, which didn't help much at all. I am wondering if there is any ideas, about whether Zofran works better than Diclectin. I am thinking I would like to try that instead next time. I live in Canada, but know of an OB that does prescribe Zofran and Diclectin.
You should speak to your doctor and call our NVP Helpline 1 800 436-8477 to discuss your individual case. You may have not been taking the correct dose of Diclectin and that is why it did not help much. Since your last pregnancy, Motherisk published a study on Zofran and found that it appears to be relatively safe and effective and the NVP counsellor can tell you about the study.
