Forum > Treatment: Diclectin
Diclectin - Dosing and scheduling are important

Treatment
Date: 2003-01-24

Question:
I am eight weeks pregnant. My morning sickness lasts most of the day. My doctor has prescribed diclectin. I started taking it two days ago. I have not thrown up since then, however I still feel nauseated. My question is whether it takes time for the diclectin to kick in? Will the nausea stop just as the vomitting has? I am also taking Eryc 333 to combat bronchitis. Could this be effecting the diclectin? Thank you in advance for your help. S

Answer:
Diclectin can be effective within a day or several days for some women. Dosing and scheduling are important. Please talk to your doctor about this and about any possible interaction between diclectin and the medicine you are taking for your bronchitis.

It is possible that your bronchitis is aggravating your NVP symptoms and affecting your response to the diclectin. For information about the use of Eryc 333 in pregnancy call the Motherisk Information Line at (416) 813-6780. For more information about your NVP, speak to our NVP counselor at 1-800-436-8477.
