Hi there.

Im am 7 weeks pregnant - and suffering with " all day sickness" . My doc gave me ASIC tablets to take - and I take 2 before I go to bed and one in the early morning. But by about 3pm - Im feeling horrid again. Can I take another one in the afternoon - or would that be overdoing it? Im drinking ginger tea, and ginger cookies... but it just doesnt seem to help.
I just dont want to harm my little one.

Thanks for the help!

It is best to use as little medication as you can, but one extra tablet a day should not make a difference.

HI ladies I am 8 months pregnant today and still have morning sickness and has been taking ASIC since i was 2 months pregnant. I aslo felt bad in the afternoon if i took the pills at night before i sleep. But for the past few months i've been taking them at around 4 in the earlier morning and am feeling great during the day. Its like the pill stays in my body longer. Its just now am constantly thirsty and drinks alot of fluids. Have a great week futher

Hi Im 13 weeks now and also have all day nausea. I find if I skip my Asic at night, I feel 10 times worse the next day. Can I take 2 in the morning in stead of 1 in the morning and another in the afternoon? Thanks.

Hi Dale! I am now 14 weeks and 7 days pregnant and have had morning sickness since six weeks up until now. It has been hectic seeing as i could not keep anything down and up till now i haven't gained any weight. I am also on asic and just went to my gyne for a check up two days seems to be growing well so i would say asic is safe for baby. Take Care and have a good & healthy pregnancy. Justine!!!

Hi Dale,

shame sweets, I understand... I had serious morning sickness right through the day up until my 13th week... I didn' t pick up any kgs due to the MS in my first trimester.

My gynae told me that Asic is safe to take 1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 2 at night... it helped me a lot... it does get better, I promise... :o)

And as all the other beautiful ladies on this site said to me, it' s all worth it... my next big thing is waiting for that first movement... :o)

Have a great week!
