Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Diclectin dosing regime


Date: 2008-04-14

Question:
Hello, I am currently 18 weeks pregnant. I have been given diclectin form my doctor when i was 8 weeks. At the time I was sick all day. Now I am better in the morning but experience horrible neaseau during my ride home from work ( 1 1/2hr drive) and at times am sick to my stomach due. Can you reccomend a safe and smart way to chaneg the times I take my diclectin so its fully in my system at 4:30pm? I wouldl appreciate any help to cope with this.

Answer:
Diclectin is recommended 4 tab/day, 2 at night, 1 in the morning and one in the afternoon. If you are taking it this way and you are still having severe nausea at 4.30pm, it is OK to change the dosing regime. You may want to call our toll free NVP Helpline at 1 800 436-8471 to receive individual counseling on the best way for you to take the medication
