Using gravol suppositories to help keep Diclectin pills down

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-01-11

Question:
I am in my 16th week of pregnancy and I am suffering from severe NVP. I have a couple of good days, which are usually followed by 2-3 days of severe vomiting. I am on diclectin, but I usually throw up shortly after I take it and I do not think that it is getting absorbed into my system. I am at the end of my rope. Can you please advise as to what I may do?

Answer:
It is possible to use gravol suppositories between doses of Diclectin to help keep the pills down. For more detailed information you should call our toll free NVP Helpline at 1-800 436-8477 and speak to one of our specially trained counselors
