Has anyone else in here taken diclectin for morning sickness? If so, how long did you feel drowsy for? I just started taking it, and while it definitely seems to help lots with my nausea I also felt like I was on the verge of passing out all day. Just wondering whether or not I can expect that feeling to go away, as it is way worse than normal pregnancy exhaustion and making it through the workday plus chasing my toddler this evening was a challenge. Trying to weigh the pros and cons of what's worse - this extreme drowsiness or the 24/7 awful nausea! Thanks!

Hm, I had to take antisickness tablets- not sure now what they were? If you're ill enought o be medicated I'd imagine that the nausea is bad. I'd go for drowsiness over nausea any day!

I find they make me drowsy but for me bone tired > nauseated/puking. I can push through the bone tired to get some stuff done but when I puke or am extremely nauseated I am pretty well incapacitated.

This was my feelings too.

I never had morning sickness but I was like you are, I felt like I had taken sleeping pills and had to fight to stay awake. It was difficult, and I didn't actually have the choice you do, but I definitely would take exhaustion over puking.

When I first started taking it, I slept an entire morning with my son right in the room with me. I lowered my dosage to one pill in the AM and one in the evening and it helped a lot.

Have you tried Zofran? I asked my doc for a non-drowsy option when she gave me the choice... It's been working very well for me.
Of course if you've tried Zofran and it didn't help, then I'm with everyone else... Tired > Nausea/Puking
