Diclectin and drowsiness

Date: 2009-05-28

Question:
i just started taking delectin and i am very tired, i went on it because the nausea was very bad taking away from my other two kids, i am so tired all i want to do is sleep, i only took 2 pills at night and now it is mid day should i just take half a pill midday. so i will not be too sleepy.

Answer:
Most women find the Diclectin makes them drowsy at first, however by the end of a week the sleepiness does go away as they get used to the medication. If at all possible, you should not cut the dose, as this will minimize the effectiveness of the drug.
