I'm 6 weeks pregnant and my doctor has put me on Diclectin..I still feel pretty nausea during the day. Is it safe to also take gravol while on this medication?..I also have a heart arryithmia, will Diclectin cause a speedy heart rate?
Both Diclectin and Gravol are antihistamines and are safe to take together. However, Diclectin is specifically recommended for pregnant women, for both safety reasons and because it also contains Vitamin B6 which is an effective anti-nauseant. It is also a delayed release tablet, you take it at night so it works in the morning. We do not know of any cases where Diclectin has been associated with a causing an increased heart rate.
