Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
How much Diclectin to take

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-02-14

Question:
I'm 7 weeks pregnant, second pregnancy - miscarried the first a few months ago. I have been taking Diclectin(4 pills/day) for NVP for the last week. I think it's helping a little. My main problem is the nausea, it goes away if I eat something and returns within an hour. I've already gained 10 lbs. in the past three weeks. Eating seems to be the only thing that temporarily takes away the nausea - I'm afraid that I will gain WAY too much weight. Is it possible that more Diclectin would help?

Answer:
Please call the Motherisk NVP Helpline and speak to one of our counsellors. It's a toll free number(1 800 436-8477). The counselor will give you more detailed information.
