Forum > Hyperemesis Gravidarum: Treating HG
When Diclectin is not available

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-08-14

Question:
I read about a study whereby pregnant women who had experienced HG before took meds before NVP occurred. I am currently about 5 weeks pregnant and was considering doing this as i have had HG twice before. I have a 2 week suppy of Dilectin and also some Unisom and vit b6, I was wondering in what dosages I would take either one of these before the NVP hits and also what dosages to take afterwards. I live in Ireland so it is not possible for me to get more Dilectin. Thanks.

Answer:
In countries where Diclectin is not available, unisom and vitamin B6 are taken for NVP. You should take the medication in the dose that was effective that you used in your previous pregnancies.
