Gravol instead of Diclectin

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-07-25

Question:
After realizing that Diclectin was not working, my doctor informed me that I can take Gravol. What dosage of Gravol is okay to take? I've been hesitant and have been taking 3 children's tablets each day.

Answer:
The ingredients in Gravol are similar to Diclectin without the Vitamin B6 and is safe to take in pregnancy. However, if Diclectin is not working for you, Gravol may not either.
