Date: 2007-03-23

Question:
Hi I am 10 weeks pregant and taking Dickectin, i am taking 4 tablets per day. I am also taking B6 in the evenings before bed. I am still extremely nauseous and vomitting occasionnaly, i can cope with the tiredness as i just sleep. But the nauseous is life consuming and it really is making me miserable. I have trtied everything, that you have suggested about eating before getting up etc. i even spent aday in hospital on an IV last weekend as i was so dehydrated. Is Unisom any better than Diclectin? HELP!

Answer:
Unisom vs. DiclectinUnisom has similar ingredients as Diclectin. Talk to your doctor about possibly increasing your dose of Diclectin. We have published a study of women who were taking up to 8 tablets/day with no adverse effects on the baby.
