Maxed out on Diclectin

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-06-26

Question:
I am currently almost 20 weeks pregnant and ever since the 5th week I have had severe nausea and vomitting. I have spoken to my doctor who put me on dicletcin but the nausea was so bad that I couldn't even get the pills into me. No food or water has been able to stay down now for 13 out of the 15 weeks i've been sick. I have spoken to a counsellor through motherisk but at that time things were better. Now I'm maxed out on diclectin at 12 pills a day and still getting no relief. My doctor tried another medication and it did not work either. I am a little concerned because to date i have lost more then 30 lbs. Is there anything else that can be done to help? should i be worried about the weight loss and the baby?
