Weening off Diclectin? I am 22 weeks pregnant and have been feeling relatively good and my NVP is basically gone. I started with 4 pills a day and I have slowly lowered my dosage of diclectin over the last month and last week went down to one pill a day. I recently stopped taking it all together and found that I had insomnia (im usually a solid sleeper) and a bit of nausea --but not too bad. I'm wondering if this is a common withdrawal side effect and how long it takes to go away? Also, if I take one pill a day until the end of my pregnancy, will I have these withdrawel symptoms when I'm a new mother? Thank you kindly for your advice.
Diclectin can be sedating, so it may not be surpising that you may have some trouble sleeping after stopping it as you did. Please consult your doctor. These symptoms should not last long, and may occur any time that you stop the medication.
