Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Diclectin the second time around

Treatment
Date: 2000-08-10

Question:
After reading the publications on Diclectin, which I am presently taking to get me through my second pregnancy, I wonder why I am finding that it seems not to be as effective as I did with my first pregnancy? I am taking the same dosage as before. I am one of the unlucky mothers who suffered with NVP for 7mos of my 1st pregnancy and I am only 10 weeks into my second. Thanks for your comments.

Answer:
Every pregnancy is different, including your NVP symptoms and treatment. Diclectin is a delayed release medication. The timing and dose for you during this second pregnancy may need to be adjusted. Talk to your doctor or call the NVP Helpline (1-800-436-8477) for further assistance.
