How did you take it? My OB with my last pregnancy prescribed 2 before bed, 1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon. The doctor I saw for the prescription yesterday told me 1 in the morning 1 at night and I can keep adding if I need to up to 6 pills a day if its severe. I'm trying to limit myself to 3 pills a day since this time around I don't have insurance and its really pricey. I don't know if I should take 1 morning, 1 afternoon, 1 evening or if I should do 2 at night and 1 in the morning? What worked for you?

I am on the same medication and to be honest its not working for the nausea. I was told to take it three times a day so I try to take it first thing in the morning, when I remember in the afternoon, and right before bed. Are you having bad nausea/vomiting? I never had to take this with my boy (2011) - so am thinking/ wondering what is going on in there lol I hope that you are not plagued with horrible nausea/ motion sickness... it's the WORST part of being pregnant!

I upped my dosage to 4/day and I have to say it doesn't take the nausea away completely but it has stopped me from constantly wanting to throw up. I have the nausea/vomiting really bad :( I started the pills last Wednesday and I see a very slow improvement. With my daughter (2011) I could take 2 a day and feel perfect!
