Hello, I just found this forum and read that you shouldn't crush or cut the diclectin pills - I wasn't told this by my doctor or pharmacist and have been taking one and a half pills as my nighttime dosage (the prescription said 1-2 pills before bed). Could this be harmful to my baby? I have been doing this for 6 weeks now and am very worried.
The reason you were told not to crush the pills before taking them is because they are delayed-acting, the ones you take at night are designed to work in the morning to help with morning sickness. If they are crushed, the delayed action does not work. However you take them will not harm your baby.
