Hi I am 7 weeks pregnant and suffering with severe nausea and some actual vomiting. I started the Diclectin 3 times a day 2 at night, one in the morning and one in the afternoon which got rid of all nausea and vomiting but unfortunatley got the side effect of a pounding heart!! I heard that B6 vitamin would have the same affects against fighting nausea and vomiting is this true???If so, how much should i take to get the same results as the Diclectin??
It has not been measured how much vitamin B6 would be needed to have the same effect as Diclectin, as the effectiveness of Diclectin is due to the combination of the antihistamine and Vit B6. However, it is known that up to 150mg/ day of Vit B6 does not have any adverse effects on either the mother or baby.
