Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Frequent vomiting

Treatment
Date: 2001-10-18

Question:
I have been taking diclectin for a week and a half because I was vomiting in excess of eight times a day. Two days ago I started vomiting again even though I am taking the diclectin 3 times a day. Yesterday I went to emergency where they gave me an i.v with gravol. I am still vomiting around 4 times a day and feel nauseous all the time. Is there anything else I can do to stop the vomiting and should I be concerned that I am still having morning sickness with the diclectin?

Answer:
From your description it does seem that your symptoms are severe and not quite relieved by Diclectin yet. Diclectin pills are delayed release and take up to 4 hours to be released. When women vomit frequently, there is a good chance that the pills might be vomited too, and therefore not active. Speak to your doctor about how to improve your treatment, or call the NVP Helpline for more information - 1-800-436-8477
