hello, my daughter is now 4 months old and doesnt sleep for very long at night or during the day. its inconsistent at best... any way someone told me that there was a study done on diclectin (the anti-nausea drug) and it revealed that there might be a link between children not sleeping and having trouble reading. i took 8 pills a day for 5 months of my pregnancy, and i have a friend who did the same and neither one of our children sleep (her's is about 6 years old now) i was wondering if this is true or not?
We are not aware of a study like the one you mentioned nor does there appear to be any evidence after thousands of women have used this medication in the past 40 years, that sleeping or reading is related to taking Diclectin during pregnancy.
