Question:
I am just beginning my seventh week of pregnancy and I am experiencing such severe nausea that on most days I can't eat or drink anything. I also haven't been able to sleep because my nausea is worse at night. I take Diclectin and it doesn't seem to do anything for me. I also try drinking ginger ale and crackers are by my side but I am usually to queasy to eat them. I am so frustrated that it's causing me to be depressed to the point where I am barely able to get out of bed. Is there anything else I could take besides my diclectin?

Answer:
You did not say how many Diclectin you are taking, because it is important that you are taking an effective dose and at the right times . You may want to call our NVP helpline at our toll free number 1 800 436-8477 where you can speak to our specially trained counselors for more information on how to manage your nausea.
