Diclectin and ulcers

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-04-30

Question:
My wife suffers from Ulsers and just started taking diclectin doxylamine to control her nausea and vomitting. She's in her second month pregnant. She's only taken it for one full day so far because it is causing her sever ulsers pain and hearburn and she's having difficulty continuing with the drug. Is that a common side effect of Diclectin? What is your recommendation for her?

Answer:
This is not a known side effect and as well, you said that your wife already had ulcers before becoming pregnant. Your wife may want to call our toll free NVP Healthline(1800 437-8477) to discuss her NVP symptoms with one of our specially trained counselors.
