What is Diclectin used for?
Diclectin is a combination of doxylamine and pyridoxine that is prescribed in the treatment of nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy. While common, these symptoms can affect your nutrition and health during your pregnancy. Doxylamine is an antihistamine and pyridoxine is a form of Vitamin B6.
It is thought to work by managing the levels of serotonin and acetylcholine in the body. These natural chemicals affect the brain and with proorp, management can potentially reduce nausea symptoms. It also contains Vitamin V which pregnant women may lack.
Diclectin is taken orally on an empty stomach with a glass of water. It may take longer to work if taken with meals but the efficacy will remain the same. It is often recommended to take this at night to reduce “morning sickness”. Additional doses may be taken if your symptoms persist throughout the day.
Your dose is determined by your condition and precious history of treatment. Your doctor will advise you how many tablets are safe to take in a given day. Talk to your doctor If you find that the recommended dose is not sufficient to manage your symptoms.
Exceeding your recommended dose may not improve your condition and may increase your risk of experiencing side effects. You should take this as directed to get the maximum benefit of the drug. You should keep this even when you feel better to prevent your symptoms from returning.
Avoid breaking, crushing or chewing the tablets. It may affect how well the body absorbs the drug.
