Question:
Just wondering how long it takes diclectin to become effective in your system? I have been taking it for a few days now with little to no relief?

Answer:
It is important that you are taking the dose that is indicated, which is 4tab/day, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and 2 at night. Each women is different,but if this dosage is not effective, you may want to call our Motherisk toll free NVP helpline at 1 800 436-8471 for more information.
