Hi I am 10 weeks pregant and taking Dickectin, i am taking 4 tablets per day. I am also taking B6 in the evenings before bed. I am still extremely nauseous and vomitting occasionnaly, i can cope with the tiredness as i just sleep. But the nauseous is life consuming and it really is making me miserable. I have trtied everything, that you have suggested about eating before getting up etc. i even spent aday in hospital on an IV last weekend as i was so dehydrated. Is Unisom any better than Diclectin? HELP!
Unisom vs. DiclectinUnisom has similar ingredients as Diclectin. Talk to your doctor about possibly increasing your dose of Diclectin. We have published a study of women who were taking up to 8 tablets/day with no adverse effects on the baby.
