I took Diclectin during most of my pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby boy on July 15th. Are there any "long term" side affects after using this pill for such a long period of time?
Diclectin, as a medication for nausea and vomiting, has been used for 40 years now. Millions of women have been taking it during their pregnancies. Close to 20 studies have been conducted over the years and no adverse effects have ever been reported. Motherisk recently completed a study of women suffering from severe NVP, often for 9 months, who took Diclectin during their entire pregnancy and found that there was no difference in the outcome of their pregnancies.
