Reviews for Diclegis to treat Nausea/Vomiting of Pregnancy
Review by ksocks47 (taken for less than 1 month):
I want to throw a ticker tape parade for the manufacturers of this medicine. It changed my life. I'm 13 weeks and was flat on my back gagging all day every day. I tried all the tricks and nothing worked until I tried this. I am back in the land of the living and hoping to regain the 10 lbs I lost in the 1st trimester. I did A LOT of research and there is nothing that indicates that this medicine causes any problems whatsoever for baby. It is probably the best researched medicine on the market to date. Emily Oster's book Expecting Better has a nice explanation for why it was pulled in the US (but not UK or Canada) for 30 yrs.

Review by 2nd baby (taken for less than 1 month):
I'm 4 months along with my second child. This pregnancy is very different from the last. I never had such bad nausea, vomiting and dry heaving. I'm taking thus medicine in an as needed basis. So far I need one pill at night and another about mid morning. The original prescription said one morning, one mid day and two at night. I did that once and slept until 2 pm the next day. That's not healthy either. The only complaint I have is the cost. It ran $178.53 for us. A cost that wasn't expected but when Phenergren and Zofran isn't working....you give in. Just as every OTC or prescription, there are side effects. For me the benefit outweighs the risk. Try to stay away from medication until at least 13 wks.

Review by Mrs.Dupre (taken for 1 to 6 months):
I started taking this medication three weeks ago and it works great for morning sickness but they don't tell you the risks they say it is safe for both you and the baby yet I started having severe chest and back pain and had blood work done over and over and they told me I was fine but I hadn't had a bowel movement in almost two weeks and I was in so much pain I couldn't get out of bed......but i found out it was the reason for all my problems, restless sleep, chest pain, back pain, not being able to stand or take care of my children it was not worth the pain and the suffering and imagine what you baby is going through if your in all that pain. There is a reason it was off the market for 30 years.

Review by vanessa3427:
I have always had horrible morning sickness. This time around I am pregnant with twins and it was much worse. I started the medication and it stopped the ache of nausea all the time! The bad is it did stop the nausea but I had no signs when I was going to throw up. So you randomly throw up without knowing your stomach is upset..not fun at All. The bad thing is with the co-pay with my insurance was $160, so very pricy but worth it.
