I am 22 weeks pregnant with twins. I suffer from severe nausea all the time , all day long. I have been taking diclectin since I was 6 weeks pregnant. I try to go off of it, but I cannot get through one day without it. This is my third pregnancy and I have never felt so sick in my life as I do in this pregnancy. Can the diclectin cause any problems to the babies if I take it for this long?
It is possible that the reason you are feeling so much sicker in this pregnancy, is because you are having twins. Results from studies have found a higher rate of NVP in women with multiples. If you have concerns about your health and pregnancy, consult your doctor. As for long term use of Diclectin, a number of women do suffer from NVP throughout the pregnancy and need to take Diclectin, sometimes up until delivery. There is so evidence that longterm use in pregnancy has any adverse effects on the baby.
