Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
When Diclectin is not available

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-03-23

Question:
I live in the US and during my first pregnancy I was sick with NVP during the entire pregnancy, my doctor prescribed only Zofran and later Reglan, none of these meds worked. This was back on 2004-05. Now I am pregnant again 8 weeks and I am sick again, I have already tried the zofran and the reglan, and nothing. I am very concern because I need to take care also of my two year old baby. I just found out your web site and I see all other medications but I don't know if they offer them here in the USA...Are medications as gravol, diclectin, or doxylamine offered in the USA?

Answer:
Diclectin is not available in the US, however the ingredients(doxylamine and vitamin B6) are available in the US. Consult your physician about their use.
