Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant and have been on diclectin since 6 weeks. I'm always nauseous, but usually only vomit around the supper hour. My GP put me on diclectin one pill, three times a day, but I don't think it's helping much during my worst times, usually between 1pm and 9pm. I just received a new prescription, and it just said to "take as needed". What would be the best dosage to take to avoid vomitting during the late afternoon/evening? Thank you.
You probably need to increase your dose of Diclectin and maybe the times to take it, as Diclectin is a delayed action medication. You may want to call our toll free NVP line at 1 800 436-8471 and one of our specially trained counsellors will explain what is the best dosage for you and when is the best time for you to take the medication.
