Ingredients of Diclectin

NVP Counsellor

Question:
Regarding B6 and Unison, the ingredients change from one dose of Unisom to the other. You need to find the lower dose with the Doxyalimine Succinate and take that with 25mg B6 - I was on Diclectin for one of my pregnancies, at over $1 per pill, and my mother-in-law is a midwife who recommended the Unisom and B6 treatment for the next pregnancy - I suffer terribly from Hyperemisis Graviderum during my pregnancies - I spoke with my doc, who looked up the main ingredients in Diclectin and she informed me my mother-in-law was correct, and that what I was taking was 100% safe. Hope this helps!

Answer:
Your mother-law is correct about the ingredients. However, the difference is that Diclectin has been formulated especially to work for pregnant women with NVP. It has a delayed action,and the dosing is at specific times such as 2 tablets in the evening, so that it works for the times of day that nausea is more severe, as in first thing in the morning.
