Hi :0-) I have severe nausea w/vomiting with my 4th pregnancy. I have been looking into diclectin, but it is not available in the US. Is there anything I can do? I am having a hard time caring for my 3 older children, and want to try diclectin. I heard of the combonation of OTC unisom (12.5 mg's doxylamine)and OTC 25.mg's B-6 (pyridoxine)Is this correct? is there a certain dosage by weight?
Please refer to previous Q&A's in this Forum for countries other than Canada where Diclectin is not available and speak to your doctor. Patients are usually advised by their doctors to use 12.5 mg doxylamine and 25 mg of B6 three times a day.
