The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
How soon can I be prescribed Diclectin? With my first pregnancy I was on this medication for the full 9 months, weaning down to 1 pill a day for the last 5 or so. I just found out I am pregnant again (only 3 weeks) but the nausea / vomiting is setting in again. Do I have to wait until it's debilitating or can I ask my doctor for a prescription and hopefully avoid the agony of what I went through the first time?
It is probably best to start treating your symptoms immediately at the first sign of nausea and before vomiting begins. Safety is not an issue since Diclectin can be taken any time from day 1 to 9 months, if needed. Since Diclectin is delayed release (i.e., not dissolved in the stomach), it can easily be vomited, and so may not provide optimal results.
