Question:
I am 9 weeks pregnant and have been suffering from nausciousness since my 5th week. I am usually perfectly fine in the morning but then it starts up at noonish and lasts the rest of the day. I have been prescribed diclectin and am wondering when the best time to take it will be. I took my first one last night before bed and was soooooo sick this morning I was tempted to throw them out. I haven't taken one since. Help!

Answer:
The recommended time to take Diclectin is 2 before bed, 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. You should not throw the pills away as it sometimes takes several days for them to work. For more information please call our specially trained counselors at 1-800 436-8477.
