What is "morning sickness"?
- Symptoms generally include nausea and vomiting
- Usually occurs in the morning, but may occur at any time and last all day
- May begin as early as 4-6 weeks after your last menstrual period
- Usually subsides after the first trimester, but can last throughout pregnancy
Delaying treatment can make your morning sickness symptoms worse, possibly leading to weight loss and dehydration, which could require hospitalization.
That’s why you should talk to your healthcare provider as soon as possible about any morning sickness symptoms you are experiencing. He or she will suggest diet and lifestyle changes to help manage your symptoms. If those changes don’t work, he or she may consider whether Diclegis® might be right for you.
