Extreme morning sickness

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-09-09

I am suffering from EXTREME morning sickness, I am on diclectin but it is not working at all. Is it safe for me to take Gravol? Also aren't diclectin and gravol the same? So shouldn't the diclectin be working for me? I'm going on 24/7 of straight morning sickness...HELP!!

Diclectin and Gravol do contain similar ingredients in that they both contain an antihistamine. However, Diclectin also contains Vitamin B6 which is effective for NVP. You did not mention how much Diclectin you are taking, so you may want to call our toll free number 1 800 436-8471 so you can dicuss with one of our counsellors the right dosage for you.
