It's not available here but we do have 2 options. The active ingredients in Diclectin are doxylamine and vitamin b6, both of which are available over the counter here. Unisom(NOT the gel caps) contains 25mg of doxylamine, Diclectin is 10mg. So a little less than half a tablet of the unisom. The pyridoxine in Diclectin is just vitamin B6, 10mg. My doc recommended taking 25mg of B6.
The big difference between what we can get and Diclectin is that Diclectin is delayed release. You can take it the night before to prevent problems the next morning. The Unisom/B6 combo works in about 45 min and lasts for about 6-8 hours.
Definitely talk to you doc about this before you try it though! Also the second option, my doc was willing to write an rx so I could order it from a Canadian pharmacy. I didnt do it because doing it with whats available here works fine.
I find that Zofran works alot better without making me tired but my insurance will only cover a limited amount so I use the Unisom/B6 at night to conserve my Zofran.
