Question:
Hello, I am 16 weeks preganant. I been experiencing terrible bloating, gasiness and all days bouts of burping. These symptoms only especially strong after I eat certain foods such as bread or rice, citrus fruit and some vegetables, milk & chhese and really only subside if I burp. Antacids help but sometimes, I also feel extremely faint and weak even after eating a meal. I have discussed this with my doctor and he has suggested I try Dicletin. My symptons don't sound like the typical nausea & vomiting (I don't vomit at all) so I'm not sure if Dicletin will help me. What exactly does Dicletin do?? Thanks for your response.

Answer:
You are correct, Diclectin is for the symptoms of nausea and vomiting which you do not appear to have. Consult your doctor. You may want to see a nutritionist who may be able to help you adjust your diet as it appears that certain foods bring on these symptoms.
