Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Taking more Diclectin

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-01-31

Question:
I am at 12 1/2 weeks now, and have been taking Diclectin for the past 5 weeks or so. I take 1-2 pills at night before bed, and 1 or 2 throughout the day, however I am still experiencing a lot of nausea and the vomitting is increasing. I am generally fine in the mornings and middays, but the evenings (from 5 pm on) are my worst times. Would taking more pills at a different time of day help?

Answer:
You are taking the recommended dose of Diclectin, however you may need to take more and Motherisk did publish a study on the safety of taking higher doses. You can call our toll free Motherisk Helpline at 1 800 436-8477 for further information
