I had bad morning sickness with my 1st son, and with my 2nd it was so much worse (was diagnosed with HG). I'm not pregnant with my 3rd. I'm 6 1/2 weeks pregnant right now. I'm nauseous 24/7, and have been since before I took a pregnancy test... I'm not throwing up - which is a major change from my last 2 pregnancies, but the nausea is unbarable. I am taking Diclectin but it's not helping in the morning. I was told to take 1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 2 at night, but this doesn't seem to be doing the trick. By 2pm every day, my stomach settles a bit and I can manage, but from 6am-2pm, I can barely move the nausea is so bad. How can I adjust the dosage to make sure I'm not so sick in the morning?
the way you are taking the Diclectin is the standard dosing, however it can be taken to suit individual needs. You may want to speak to one of our counsellors at our toll free number; 1 800 436-8471 to discuss the most effective dosing for you.
