    Hi all I got prescribed the cyclizine hydrochloride anti sickness tablets today from my GP for my constant nausea. I can have upto 3 tablets a day can anyone tell me how long it will take for them to kick in? And their experiences on them please xxx

    They take a few days to kick in properly I believe. I got on OK with them at the start they stopped the sickness but left me with extreme tiredness and nausea. In the end I got put on a stronger pill called ondansatron which is miles better but usually used in chemotherapy and im trying to use it sparingly 1. Coz it's expensive which foolishly I care about even though my prescriptions are now free :( 2. It's not as wide spead in pregnancy as cyclizine so hasn't got as much info on it about side effects. There is a slight chance of increased cleft pallet's on it.

    I was put on cyclizine on Friday but it does nothing for me. I was on avomine before and that was better, even though I still get nausea 24/7. I do hope it works for you though xx

    For me they worked within a few days, but I was still constantly nauseous so switched to prochloperazine. They told me if I wasn't feeling better after three or four days to get in touch again.

    No I've not had that one x
    I got my sick note extended after having one of my sickiest days to date. 8+5 I really hope your right and little one is growing! I feel the same if not worse than I felt with my son. I'm clinging to that!
