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 took Diclectin while pregnant. Are there any associations between its use and congenital heart defects? Also I read a post stating there was no connection between Paxil and CHD's...I was on it and took myself off it very slowly, due to recent "alleged" findings...I am not taking a chance already being at greater risk of a second child with a CHD.
Diclectin is the most studied drug in pregnancy and there has never been an association with an increase risk for any type of defects including congenital cardiovascular defects. As for your Paxil question, we only answer questions related to NVP in this forum, so I would suggest you call our general information line at 416 813-6780 where you will receive the most current information regarding Paxil and pregnancy.
