Diclectin side effects

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2010-02-01

Question:
I am pregnant with my second child and my dr prescribed Diclectin for nausea, as with my previous pregnancy. But since I started taking it I noticed I have side effects that didn't occur before. Insomnia, pounding heart, headaches. I am only taking it when I need it, not daily. My Dr is sending me for an ecg and an ekg because of the pounding heart. Could diclectin be responsible for it?

Answer:
Please call to discuss these symptoms with one of our NVP counsellors at our toll free NVP Helpline: 1-800 436-8477. Our NVP counselors are available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
