Please help... I am just nearing the end of my 7th week of my second pregnancy and I am extremely ill.....I am nausea all day and vomit occasionally. My doctor has prescribed me diclectin....two at bed and one throughout the day, however I have been on it for over a week now and do not notice a difference....... I am having alot of difficulty just functioning on a daily basis... I have a 3 year old an I am finding it very hard to complete daily tasks as a Mom...my husband has been wonderful and stepped up to the plate with completing daily duties like the dishes and meal prep, however I am very concerned that this is going to last my entire pregnancy and the thought of that is overwhelming...is there anything you can recommend that may help..... Thank You.....
Consult your doctor. You are not taking the maximum dose, which is 4 tab/day, so increasing it should help. In addition, sometimes it can take a little longer to work for some women. If you continue to suffer from severe NVP after this, you may want to call our toll free NVP line and speak to one of our counselors for more information.
