Answer:
You did not mention when you started taking Diclectin and how much you are taking. Consult your doctor. The minimum dosage is 4 tab/day; 2 at night, one in the morning and afternoon. It may take several days to tell whether it is working. For more information you may want to call our tollfree NVP helpline at 1 800 436-8471 and speak to one of our counsellors to discuss further options.
