Question:
Hello, I am 6 weeks pregnant. I feel nauseated.Have been vomitting every 3 haurs but at times every haur as well. I feel very weak. My doctar mentioned "dilectin" for nausea. She says it will make me feel better. My question is how safe is dilectin during pregnancy. Also my doctor will check me for 8 months. After that i wll be switched to another doctor. Do you think that is a good idea or shall i take 1 doctor for all the 9 months. Thanks Nadia

Answer:
Diclectin is the drug of choice for nausea and vomiting in Canada, so if your doctor prescribes it you should take it. The question about doctor switching is not one we would answer.
