Question:
I am eight weeks pregnant and going on two week boat trip. I do get sea sick and am already dealing with mild NVP. Will diclectin help sea sickness nausea as well as NVP? Is it safe to take an OTC sea sickness medicine with diclectin? Should I switch to a sea sickness medicine while I'm at sea, and if so, which ones are safe to take while pregnant?
