Hi, I've been having severe nvp. I am 6 weeks pregnant, and I've been hospitalized for dehydration twice, I've been on diclectin for the past three weeks and it wasn't helping, so they put me on diclectin and maxeran tid. Is this a safe combination?
For some women with severe NVP, Diclectin alone is not sufficient, so other dugs are added such as maxeran. Used as directed by your doctor, this combination is considered safe, as neither drug has been found to increase the risks of birth defects or other adverse effects on the baby.
