Answer:
You are welcome to call our toll free (-800-436-8477) Motherisk NVP Helpline and talk to one of our specially trained counselors. You will be able to discuss why Diclectin may not have worked for you. The Motherisk counselor can also talk to you about prochlorperazine which to our knowledge, has not been found to cause adverse effects on babies whose mother took it in pregnancy.
