Question:
hi im pregnant and i was prescibed Diclectin for the morning sickness ive been having..i havent found out how far along i am yet so i was wondering if it matterd and if i am supposed to wait until im a certain week to be taking this???

Answer:
You should start the Diclectin whenever you get morning sickness, no matter how far along you are, in fact we encourage women to take it at the very first sign of NVP, as it appears to work better then, than waiting until it is really severe.
