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.
My daughter has had to take diclectin through most of her pregnancy. Does she need to come off the diclectin prior to giving birth? Can she still breastfeed if she has been on this medicaton?
Women who have suffered severe NVP throughout pregnancy usually find the NVP goes away right after delivery, often within a few hours, so they do not require the Diclectin any more. However, if they do need to take it for a short while longer, it is safe to use and breastfeed, as minimal amounts are excreted in the breastmilk, not enough to have any adverse effects on the baby.
