Question:
my wife has severe nvp from our first and second child. and on this pregnancy looks like it will be more severe. she just starting to take diclectin. can she take this with empty stomach, because if she take this with food, after few minutes she'll start to vomit and we're worried that diclectin wont work if she take it with food and vomit after few minutes. thanks.. jhun

Answer:
Your wife should consult her physician. Most women take the Diclectin when they are able to tolerate it -- it does not matter when. Do remember that Diclectin has a delayed release, that is why doctors recommend it at night to help the NVP first thing in the morning.
