Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
When you have nausea but no vomiting

Date: 2006-04-26

Question:
Some of the woman writing in have such severe NVP that I feel guilty complaining at all. I had quite severe nausea but little vomitting in my first pregnancy. It lasted from week 7-16. I am now 9 weeks pregnant with my second and I started taking Diclectin at 6 weeks. I have the most severe nausea in the evenings. My question is two-fold. Is there any risk taking in Dicletin for less severe symptoms and what is the optimal time to taks the medication for evening/night symptoms. Thank you

Answer:
Just because you do not vomit, it does not mean that it is not severe and absolutely you should be treated. In fact sometimes severe nausea can be worse as it never lets up, whereas once you vomit at least you feel better for a little while. It certainly is not harmful to the baby and as Diclectin is long acting, it is important that you take it at the prescribed times of one in the morning, one in the afternoon and 2 are for the morning sicknessa, but as yours is more severe in the evening you could take the 2 in the afternoon instead to help with the evening nausea.
