I have taken one dose (2 pills) of Diclectin before bed lastnight. I now have severe stomach pain - as if I have really bad gas pains or diareah. It's causing me to get the sweats and very dizzy as well. Is this something that I should be concerned about and notify my midwife about?
Diclectin can cause dizziness and drowsiness when you first start taking it, however it usually goes away within a week after starting it. If the symptoms persist longer than this, you should inform your health care provider as you may be sensitive to this medication.
