Date: 2006-11-16

Question:
I am taking diclecton 4 times at day. 1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 2 in the evening. My morning sickness occurs around 12 noon and continues until about 8:00 p.m (I have extreme nausea and sometimes vomiting). Would it be better for me to take 1 diclecton in the morning 2 diclecton in the afteroon and 1 in the evening? Please advise. Thanks Rebecca.

Answer:
These are the standard times to take it,however, each women is different and you can take it whenever it works best for you. If it is still not working, you may need to increase the dose. You might want to call The Motherisk Helpline at 1 800 436-8477, to speak to one of our specially trained counselors who will advise you on whether you need to increase your dose or not.
