How long to continue using Diclectin

Treatment
Date: 2002-07-04

Question:
I am 10w3d pregnant and have been taking Diclectin for a little over 2 weeks now. It is helping me tremendously and I feel much better. My question is: how long do I continue to take the Diclectin? I take 2 tablets every night and that seems to work. I was feeling so much better that I purposely missed a dose but the next day I was so sick I knew I had to continue using it.

Answer:
We are pleased to hear that the Diclectin is helping you with your NVP. It is OK to continue taking it as long as your NVP persists. Many women have taken it throughout their pregnancies with no adverse effects to themselves or their babies. If you want to stop taking it you can gradually cut down, however if the NVP comes back, you can go on it again.
