Suppositories for NVP

Question:
My doctor prescribed diclectin for my morning sickness. When I told her I couldn't get the pills down as i kept vomiting them back up she said I could take them vaginally as a suppository. I haven't been able to find any other information on-line saying you could take these vaginally. Is this information accurate?

Answer:
Diclectin does not come in suppository form, however there is another safe medication that does come in a suppository. You may want to call our toll free NVP Helpline at 1 800 436-8471 and speak to one of our specially trained counselors for more information on what and how much to take.
