Diclectin 4 times a day?

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2010-10-04

Question:
I'm 8 weeks pregnant and this is my second pregnancy. My doctor prescribed me Diclectin and it says to take one pill, twice daily. I have found no relief and I've been taking it for almost 6 days. Should I be taking Diclectin 4 times a day as per the website information?
