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?
