Question:
I am 12 weeks pregnant and have been on diclectin since about week 6. I am really nauseaous in the evening so I have tried rearranging the doses but it still does not help. I am currently taking one in the morning when I wake up, 2 pills in mid-afternoon and one at about 9 pm. Is there a better way to take this? I tried the originally prescribed 2 at bed, one in am and one at lunch but was terribly sick in the evenings. any advice?

Answer:
Call the Motherisk NVP Helpline to speak to a counselor. She can offer helpful information about dosing and scheduling.
