I am 12 weeks pregnant,at 6 weeks I was also in the hospital suffering from morning sickness and dehydration, and also taking diclectin. My prescrpition allows me to take 3 pills daily and since doing so I have been feeling better, able to return to work. I often feel sick in the morning but once I eat something I feel ok. After reading this web sight and listening to other ladies Q&A I feel a little bit better about taking diclectin and understand all about the drug. I want to thank you for answering the questions that I had and I am glad to know that I'm Not going through this alone. This is my first pregnancy and I'm still really nervous about the whole thing, even though I have amazing support from my husband and family. The only thing that bothers me is that I sometimes can't take my vitamin I try to break it in half and take it at meal time but I feel sick after doing so. My doctor tells me to take them but it's hard. Is there much harm? Thank-you very much for the time it took in reading my e-mail.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write. It is great to know that we and all those who participate in this Forum are making a difference! By the way, if you need to you can take up to 4 Diclectin pills a day as this is the standard dose. Also it is probably OK not to take your vitamins until you feel better. Talk to your doctor but he or she will probably say that you should concentrate on eating what you can and when the NVP has passed you can resume taking the vitamins.
