What is Diclegis?
Diclegis is a prescription medication used to treat morning sickness. It’s usually prescribed after changes in diet and other non-medical treatments have been tried but haven’t worked. Morning sickness also called pregnancy sickness or nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP), affects around 50% to 90% of pregnant women. It makes you feel sick (nauseous) and makes you be sick (vomiting). Morning sickness isn’t dangerous, but it can feel very unpleasant and can disrupt your daily life.
You can take Diclegis to help ease nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. It comes as a delayed-release tablet you swallow. How many tablets and how often you take them will be determined by the doctor who prescribes it to you.
Diclegis active ingredients
Diclegis has two active ingredients that work together, called doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride. It’s not fully understood how the two active ingredients in Diclegis work together to treat morning sickness, but research has shown that it can reduce your nausea and vomiting and that it’s a safe drug to use during pregnancy.
Doxylamine succinate, usually just called doxylamine, is an antihistamine, a type of medicine normally used to treat allergies. Doxylamine can alter the balance of substances in your body called neurotransmitters. These substances regulate a wide range of processes, and doxylamine can act as a sedative, having a calming effect on your body and nervous system.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride, usually just called pyridoxine, is a vitamin belonging to the B family of vitamins (it’s vitamin B6). Research has shown that taking pyridoxine can help reduce morning sickness.
Diclegis side effects & Diclegis drug interactions
Diclegis is a long-studied medication, and research has shown the risk of side effects is low and that it’s generally safe to take during pregnancy. Diclegis has been found to be so safe it’s one of the few medications that qualify for FDA Pregnancy Category A status. The most common side effects caused by Diclegis include:
- Sleepiness (somnolence)
- A greater risk of falls, especially if you take Diclegis with alcohol, or central nervous system depressants, like sedatives, tranquilizers, or hypnotics, often found in pain and cough and cold medications
In rare instances, Diclegis can cause more serious side effects, including:
- Severe allergic reactions to the medication
- Tachycardia, a dramatic increase in your heart rate that can be life-threatening
Diclegis can interact with the following medications:
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) antidepressants, like Marplan, Nardil, Emsam, Eldepryl, Zelapar, or Parnate
- Any central nervous system (CNS) depressants, like sedatives, tranquilizers, or hypnotics
