Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Best time to take Diclectin

Question:
My problem is nausea at night! Well from after dinner to bedtime really. I have been prescribed two dicletins per day. What is the best time to take them to alleviate the nighttime nausea? The doctor said before bed, but the pharmacist said in the afternoon. So far two days in I have not had any relief. On day one I took the pills at about 3:30 p.m and on day two at about 7:00 p.m. Thanks!

Answer:
To achieve the best results from Diclectin, the recommended dose is 4 perday, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and two before bedtime. Talk to your doctor about adjusting your dose for maximum effectiveness.
