Hello, If this question is a repeat I apologize but I did not see it posted in the ones I checked. I am on the 4-pill a day regime with Diclectin, with minimal efficacy. I am 10/11 weeks pregnant with HG. I have not slept in the last 4 nights. Can I take the 4 pill regime and a unisom at night? I hope so because the lack of sleep is really getting to me.
4/day of Diclectin is the standard dose, however some women have taken up to 8/d with no adverse effects on their baby. Talk to your doctor about changing the dose to be more effective. Unisom has similar ingredients as Diclectin, so it is safe to add to the Diclectin, as directed by your doctor.
