I was put on diclectin and metaclopromide last time? Not sure what the next step would have been as that was enough. So far this time just diclectin, which is taking the edge off, but still feeling crappy. Diclectin is just vitamin
B6 and an antihistamine.

OP, Hope they find something to help you

Can I ask how much you take per day? I'm doing just 4 mg and thinking about cutting down to 2 and trying to wean off, but I'm really nervous about it.

My script is for the 8 mg ODT, but I break it in half and only take it as needed, which isn't necessarily every day, but can be up to twice a day. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when or how often the nausea hits. Cut your tablet in half and see if you can get away with just 2 mg... you always have the other half if you need it! I don't know if there is a *need* to wean yourself off. One day you will find that you just don't need it any more or at least as often as you did. Good luck with what ever you decide!

Re: terrible morning sickness - help

Thanks! I did get the rx, life changing! I did get drowsy, and I could feel regurgitation and my body to trying to get sick. I do still have bad stomach aches, but easier to deal with than vomiting. I am going to try zantac today. This is crazy how many tummy issues I am having for being so newly pregnant! ugh!

Did you get zofran? That will really only stop you from vomiting, not from being nauseous, so be prepared for that. The zantac is probably a good idea. Most women with very bad morning sickness require an acid blocker of some sort. I hope it all works out I'm glad you're already getting some relief.
