Date: 2007-04-24

Question:
I was on holiday in Spain recently and was able to purchase over the counter a product called Cariban. I am told this is the spanish equivalent of Diclectin. It contains : 10mg Doxylamine succinate 10mg Pyridoxine Hydrochloride As I live in Europe - I cannot get Diclectin. Does Cariban work as effective as Diclectin. Would appreciate any advice on same. Carrie

Answer:
The information you received regarding the drug is correct, it contains the same combination of medications as Diclectin.
