Diclectin belongs to the class of medications called antinauseants. Diclectin is used to treat the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. It contains two medications, doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride, that work on the centers in the brain that control these symptoms.
Diclectin may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Diclectin may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Diclectin may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.
Your doctor may have suggested Diclectin for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Diclectin, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Diclectin without consulting your doctor.
Do not give Diclectin to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Diclectin if their doctor has not prescribed it.
The recommended dose is 2 tablets at bedtime. In severe cases or if nausea or vomiting occurs during the day, your doctor may recommend adding 1 tablet in the morning and 1 tablet mid-afternoon. Swallow the medication whole. Do not chew, divide, or crush the tablets.
Diclectin works best when taken 4 to 6 hours before needed (e.g., anticipated Morning Sickness) and should be taken on a daily basis.

If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
