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 suffered with severe NVP for both my children. My son who is the oldest , I was never prescribed anything for and is perfectly healthy and 18 years old now. My daughter who will be 9 in Feb. I was prescribed Diclectin. Is it true that you cannot get Dicletin in the U.S. because it does cause side effects? Is it safe to use by Canadians? After my daughter was born I suffered from depression unlike anything I have ever experienced. Also, my daughter has a learning disability and hearing problems. Could the cause be from taking this medication while pregnant?
You cannot get Diclectin in the US because it is not available there, not because it is not safe. This is the most studied drug in pregnancy and there never has been any suggestion of any adverse effects on the fetus.
