Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Diclectin and drowsiness

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2009-01-01

Question:
I am 6 weeks pregnant. I am feeling very sick 24/7. I took Diclectin for the first time yesturday and I do feel better. I feel very sleeply and drowsy though. Also I have been noticing that I am very nervous because I think the nausea will come back. Is it normal to feel like that? Should I lessen my dosage of Diclectin?

Answer:
Most women find that the Diclectin makes them feel drowsy when they first start taking it. However, usually within a week these symptoms go away. Consult your doctor about dosage. The usual dosage is 2 tabs at night, 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon.
