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 am taking Diclectin 2 tabs at night, one in morning and one in afternoon. It helps, but I am still nauseous all the time and it is making me depressed. I am missing far too many days at work. This website said that I could take Gravol. So, I took 50 mg with my Diclectin one afternoon and it helped a lot. Problem is that my doctor told me not to take it. I am confused. Who do I believe? Why would she say that?
Gravol is also safe to take in pregnancy, it contains an antihistamine that is similar to the one found in Diclectin. We are not sure why your doctor told you not to take it. You may want to call our toll free NVP Helpline at 1 800 436-8477 for more information.
