I took Diclegis twice daily for about a month, maybe 8-12 weeks?  I also wasn’t vomiting, but had extreme nausea all the time.  I stopped it because I didn’t think it was helping so I didn’t see a point in continuing.  My nausea slowly improved until about 22-23 weeks when I finally felt somewhat normal although I still have queasy moments (I’m 25 weeks now).

I took it for a while beginning around maybe 6 weeks? 8? Didn’t help, upped to Zofran which is hardcore. But I ended up breaking out in hives from my flu shot around 15-20 weeks, forget when exactly, and took Benadryl which ended up being SUPER effective controlling the naseau, vomiting, and smell aversions. it was great (and doesn’t require a prescription!).

AORiver15 :  Of Benadryl? The dosage on the box, which is like 2 pills every 4+ hours. I took it for several days, thought to myself “wow, I’m finally feeling better, this is great!” stopped taking it because the hives were gone, got sick the next day, realized it was Benadryl and started taking it again for probably another two weeks. That was towards the 20 week mark so my morning sickness was coming to an end anyway. Hope your morning sickness fades before then!

AORiver15 : my prescription for diceglis would have cost $600 (yay high deductible insurance), so I opted for unisom and vitamin b6 (same active ingredients) for $16. It worked pretty well, though my nausea and vomiting was mostly at night.

I stopped taking it around 14 weeks when nausea went away. But sadly, at 28 weeks it started coming back occasionally at night. So I bought some more. It does help me sleep, which is a perk.

Good luck with Diceglis and hope the nausea subsides!

AORiver15 :  I’ve been taking it since week 7. I’m currently 13 weeks. This is my second pregnancy and I suffer from bad nausea and vomitting. It makes me very sleepy so I only take one pill before bedtime every day. Some days are better than others but it takes the edge off and makes getting through the work day manageable. I was starting to wean myself as of last week but started getting sick again so I went back on. Don’t think I’m ready just yet. Hopefully it starts letting up soon!
