When is the best time of day to take a prenatal vitamin to deter nausea? Also.. I'm 6.5 weeks pregnant and taking diclectin (it only takes the edge off my nausea), but I'm wondering if it is contributing to my overwhelming fatigue level. I am barely able to care for my 3 year old at times because I can easily sleep a total of 4 hours during the day. Would the diclectin be making my fatigue worse?
Diclectin contains 2 ingredients, vitamin B6 and doxylamine. Doxylamine is a sedating antihistamine so it may be contributing to your fatigue. Women tell us that the drowsiness usually wears off after taking it for about a week to 10 days.
