Safety of Diclectin

NVP Counsellor

Question:
I have been prescribed Declectine because I am having a hard time with nausea. But, I have a fear of taking anything while pregnant. I have heard that this drug is not prescribe in the United States, is this because it is not safe? If the drug didn't have any side effects then wouldn't it be prescribed for women all over and not just in Canada? How can I be sure this is safe for me and my baby?

Answer:
Diclectin is not prescribed in the US because it is not available there. This drug has been studied extensively and has been determined to be safe in pregnancy.
