Counselling about treatment options


Date: 2011-03-24

Question:
I am 9 weeks pregnant and have very bad NVP. I am currently taking 4 diclectin a day. One in the am, one in afternoon, two before bed. I am having no relief at all. What are my other options? Is Gravol safe to use as well with the diclectin?

Answer:
Since the recommended dose of four Diclectin per day is not working for you, you may want to call our toll free NVP telephone Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 to speak to one of our counsellors. They can provide information about options and treatment specific to your symptoms. Counsellors are available Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.
