Long term effects of Diclectin

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-07-18

I took Dicletin 8 months while I was pregnant with my second one, and my baby is extremely sleepy and calm even at 5 month. I wonder if this might come from the medicine she was exposed to in the womb.

This is not likely, especially so long after delivery, when the drug has long gone from the baby's system. As well, we conducted a longterm study on babies whose mother's had taken Diclectin in pregnancy and there were no reports such as this or any other adverse effects in these babies.
