Wondering if any bees or if anyone you know of has had experiences with Diclectin. I’ve been feeling pretty under the weather for the past 3-4 days. I’m assuming it will only get worse from here. I had a doctors appointment yesterday, and he gave me a script for Diclectin. I know that since I got it from a doctor it’s safe, and I shouldn’t worry about using it… but I guess I want to know other experiences out there… if you took it did it actually help? I’d rather not be on any medication , but as a grade two teacher standing in front of 24 students daily, I don’t know if I’ll have a choice. 🙁

Diclectin is just vitamon B6 and an antihistamine. You have to take the pills at the intervals that they recommend in order for it to work properly – it’s not like super fast acting. I found that it made me a bit more sleepy and out of it, but it took the edge off of mild/moderate nausea! It’s perfectly safe to take – I wouldn’t worry about that!

@Mrs.H2B: I took Diclectin too. I really didn’t want to and I put it off for 3 weeks after my doctor have me the prescription, but I had an exam to write and needed to be well enough to make it through the whole 3 hours without leaving. It helped me so much! It took away the constant state of nausea and it cut the vomiting down a lot. I continued to vomit a couple of times a week while on it, but not multiple times a day and I felt well enough to eat, drink, and function again. I even felt up to DTD a couple of times whereas before that I was far too sick. Around 15-16 weeks it started to feel like it wasn’t making as much of a difference anymore and I saved my last few pills for really bad days. I still have several left. Now at 25 weeks I still vomit every week or two, but I don’t need the diclectin because it took most of the edge off and I don’t have that edge to be taken off anymore.

I was vomitting around the clock and took diclectin from weeks 8-18… Couldn’t have lived without it! It’s perfectly safe and kept the nausea at bay. But remember to eat regularly! That helps too.
anyway, amaZing stuff, do take it!

I took it for between weeks 7-12, but really only when I needed it. I know they say for it to work you have to continue taking it at regular intervals, but I found that I just needed to take it when I was feeling nauseated. It can make you a little sleepy, though 😉

I’ve been taking it for about 3 weeks (the US equivalent, called Diclegis). I would say it is moderately helpful, but has not eliminated my nausea and vomiting. I am on the highest dose and still vomit around 3-4 times a day.

I have been taking unisom and B6 (same ingredients in Diclegis, but I believe Diclegis is time released) when I am desperate and can’t take the naseau anymore and have to be functional. My doctor recommended it and so far it has been very helpful.

I’ve been taking it a few weeks now. It did help reduce the constant nauseau to a dull throb – helped me get off the couch. Still really nauseaous and vomiting (I’m also taking gravol and zantac) but if yours is mild, maybe it will really help you. I did a bit of research before I agreed to take it and it seems fine.

Loved it. Saved my life with both my pregnancies. I was already quite tired all the time, so I only took it once a day, before bed, instead of once at night and once in the morning. It still worked well and I avoided more dro wsiness at work.
