I’ve been on Zofran my entire pregnancy (I’m 33 weeks). It’s worked pretty well. Even if it doesn’t get rid of the nausea all the way it keeps me from puking. I have to take a stool softener with it though cuz it makes me constipated. Try talking to your doc about how you’re feeling.

I took Diclectin for quite a while.  It does have an antihistamine in it, so it’s normal to be a little drowsy, especially with your night time does (I was 1 pill twice a day and 2 at bedtime).  The drowsiness went away after a couple days.

I was on it last year (luckily only once a day) and I was super drowsy at first. It did pass, but I almost felt like I had to wean myself off of it when my first trimester was finished. I tried a couple of times, and both times, I was very sick – almost worse than the morning sickness I was prescribed the pill for in the first place! This lasted a couple of days, and then I was fine the rest of my pregnancy.

@hopestruck:  I’m so sorry to hear you’re having trouble with morning sickness/nausea 🙁 I hope you feel better soon. I had it pretty bad in the first trimester, but by week 13 (I’m 17w3d now) it was totally gone. I was at the point where I almost asked my doctor for medication for it, but then it got better before I could even ask. My friends/family told me to try crackers, ginger, etc. but the one thing I found that really helped was sour candies. Lemonheads and sour patch kids really helped. Also, the scent of lemon helped if I cut a lemon and just sniffed it as I started feeling the nausea coming on. It certainly doesn’t work for all, but it worked for me! I hope you have the same results!!! Good luck and feel better!

I took diclectin from 8-18 weeks, and it ill make you a little tired, but so will th first trimester in general. I was taking 4 pills a day, and I needed them in order to not be sick. I wouldn’t alter the dose, because if you get sick again, it might be hard to get it to stay down and then it’s a vicious cycle of being sick all over again!
