Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Ask Your Own Medical Question

We can not prescribe medicine on the site, we answer questions.

I assume you are asking are there cheaper alternatives so you can ask your doctor about this?

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Diclegis is the only FDA approved medicine and fully considered safe.

However, there are other medicines that are used that are cheap.

Is this mild nausea or severe nausea?

Which medicine should I take for my nausea and good for my health and baby ?instead of diclegis

Other medicines that can be used are

However, these are not considered as safe. They don't have the same safety data that diclegis has.

So talk with your OB carefully about this.

IN addition, perhaps you can call the company that makes diclegis [or your doctor can] and see if there are special discount programs, many times there are.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
