Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Taking Diclectin and Gravol


Date: 2008-03-31

Question:
I am almost 15 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing lots of nausea and vomiting. It has subsided the last week. Some days I am still vomiting esp in the evenings. I am on the maximum dose of diclectin. I was wondering if I can take gravol as well. I know it is safe during pregnancy and has similar component as diclectin. I do have a Dr appointment but it is not until next week. Thanks very much

Answer:
Some women experience NVP past the first 3 months; some until they deliver the baby. Gravol is safe to take in pregnancy. Also, Motherisk published a study of women taking up to 8 Diclectin per day with no adverse effects on their babies. Consult your doctor to discuss either increasing your dose of Diclectin or adding Gravol if your present regime is not effective enough.
