I have been taking diclectin since about 6 weeks when I started feeling icky. I feel great, which can be because of the pills, but I have decided to cut out the morning pills. I was taking 2 at night, 1 in the morn, and 1 in the aft. I cut out the afternoon one a long time ago, and now I am cutting out the morning one. I will be 10 weeks on Saturday, so I am very close to the second trimester. I think at 12 weeks I will cut down to one at night, and then none. If the sickness comes back, I will refill my script. I am such a sissy when it comes to feeling gross, and especially with puking. When I had the tummy flu on Monday I called...I guess you can call him the babies dad (nothing established, but that is a whole other story)... at 5:30am crying and telling him to come over because I was puking. I am not sure if that would make me run to someone, but I am such a sissy.

Anyone else going to stop taking the meds soon? I think in the US you have Zofran, and in Canada we have Diclectin.

I never started it full time this time. I just took as needed. I had both zofran and phenergan. but haven't taken any since the weekend of the car accident. so almost 2 weeks.

I didn't take the diclectin full time either, except for a week or so at the beginning when it was really bad, and even then I was only taking two at night and one in the morning. I've occasionally taken one in the evening when I tend to feel ickiest and it helps me get a good sleep too.

I just got an rx for Zofran & only took 1 yesterday & 1 today. I'm only taking it as needed as suggested by my OB. I think I may take one when I eat lunch now as I'm starting to feel a bit yuck. They're a nice back up to have!

I haven't had anything for m/s. I actually haven't thrown up at all, just constantly felt like I was going to. I'll be 11 weeks tomorrow, so I'm hoping that it'll ease up on me in the next week or so.

Nothing here either. With DD they wouldn't prescribe me anything since I wasn't throwing up(my office was more pro-natural remedies I guess). I ordered the Mother's Bliss Morning Sickness supplement online and hope to get it today or tomorrow, but thankfully I'm not feeling quite as gross all the time anymore.

I try to just take it as I need it. That being said it's usually a Zofran in the morning and a Phenergan at night.
