Common Questions and Answers about Zofran and phenergan

zofran

My dr prescribed it to me too being dizzy and light headed are some side affects of it and itll sometimes knock me out for an hour or so
My first pregnancy (in which I ended up miscarrying) my doctor tried me on phenergan and 2 other kinds of nausea pills. I honestly didn't like the way phenergan made me feel, all it did was put me to sleep and then when I woke up id be sick as a dog again. But with this pregnancy (I'm 33w+4d), for the first 5 months I couldn't eat or drink anything without it coming back up and I actually lost weight. I went to a different doctor and he put me on zofran which worked miracles on most days!
I have severe hyperemesis so my doc put me on phenergan every 12 hrs and in between zofran every 8 and it has worked for me!
zofran is usually used to control nausea in cancer patients or for surgery. with pain meds, they usually give promethazine, which is what i take. so in answer to your question, no. i have not taken zofran to the best of my knoweldge.
zofran is safe :). there are 2 nausea medicines that are considered safe for pregnancy, and zofran sounds like the better choice for you (since phenergan makes you sleepy, and that's the other option, i think it would freak you out!). every medicine is going to carry warnings, and there will be people who SWEAR that this medicine caused this or that...but that's the internet for you. it is considered safe, and your OB only prescribed it because they felt it was safe....
Its only 4mg and Ive had it just laying around forever and I felt so much better when I took it but then I felt like crap after I did it because I looked it up online and it said not to take while pregnant!
It's great that Zofran is working for you. And I know exactly what you mean by night and day. I felt like a completely different person after getting Zofran on board. I also agree with you: Do not suffer. Ask for a prescription if you need one.
Hi. I am 40. 8 weeks. Was losing almost a lb a day. I'm on zofran now. Are any of you on it too? Has it helped?
Ive taken zofran both pregnancies and my babies are healthy. I asked my doctor about the commercials she said its just some attorney that decided zofran was bad and not to worry so im still taking it almost daily.
Helped most of the time, but in extremes 8took phenergan. Was also given zofran but it can cause severe constipation. If you don't feel safe taking it, don't. Do some research & find out what you feel comfortable taking.
I am currently 25 weeks and have been on zofran for the past 17 weeks and my baby is fine. There are many false claims out there against certain meds just like there are about vaccines. Be careful what you read and from where.
I was on zofran and Phenergan atvthe same time with my first. I had to get IVs because i couldn't even drink water. I lost 13 pounds even though i was on prednisone. You should never lose weight while on prednisone. My son came out perfect so I wouldn't be worried. This time around I have been able to eat and drink, although I haven't gained any weight yet and i'm 12 weeks. My doctor said not to be worried tho.
I'm 8wks and have had morning sickness for 3wks non stop, I could no longer take it anymore, none of the remedies were helping so I went to the ER today because I don't have an appt wit the gyn until the 16th. The Dr prescribed phenergan & I'm a bit surprised. I thought zofran was usually the drug of choice for pregnant women. Anyone else taking phenergan??
Phenergan is an old drug and works very well for nausea and also for sleep...does have a hangover effect...so dont take too much til u know it well if you work...25 mg is a standard dose...I have some from a while back but have not taken it as have not had nausea....
My brothers girlfriend was on zofran most her pregnancy and my niece was and is fine. My oldest sister was on zofran with both her children and my niece was born not breathing and my nephew had to have a blockage removed from his heart a month after being born. So I personally don't want to take any chances. Good luck whichever u choose.
zofran works much better than phenergan for nausea /vomiting. I tried it , no sides.phenergan tends to cause drowsiness and cand drop your blood pressure.Zofran is expensive, around 75.00 for a rx. not sure how many pills, but not many. Good luck...
, I take it about an hour or hour and a half before my 8 am Riba, again late afternoon, and again about 9-10 pm. If I don't take it every 8 hours I am a lot more nauseated throughout the day and eve.
I'm 22w2d and still on Zofran everyday 8mg 3x a day. I too ended up w/some iv treatment for dehydration & it helped tremendously. I also took Phenegran at night. I'm so sorry that you're this sick & that the Zofran's not working.. Maybe try Phenegran suppositories?? You'd have to talk to your ob as they are only available by prescription.
You might want to try going to the hospital of you haven't been able to hold anything and the Zofran isn't helping. They can help get nutrition to the baby and could possibly prescribe something that will help you.
I think the combination of the Zofran and my hormones caused major headaches, but Zofran is def not optional for me!
It works pretty well I take it every day still at 32 weeks and I also take phenergan too on occasion. They both work great for nausea.
I took every form of Zofran, Phenergan, and even Thorazine (and eventually had a PICC line and TPN) during my first pregnancy. Sometimes you have to make sure your baby survives first by getting you through. By the way, she's perfectly healthy. I have also been taking it during this pregnancy and I know that I would have ended up on IV fluids without it.
I had the phenergan that you rub on your wrist and it didn't work. Can they give the pill for while pregnant?
the phenergan has caused neruological damage. The question now is it permanent. I am OFF phenergan and on Zofran now. They gave me klonopin for the restlessness and it has helped for now. Hopefully the damage is not permanent but time will tell.
I stopped taking the Prilosec as of this morning but I did take the B6 and stool softener. I'll take the Zofran every 8 hrs or so and another B6 and the folic acid and aspirin tonight. I'm going to stop taking the Benadryl and I'm also going to skip the phenergan and see how I sleep tonight. I hate taking all of the meds unless I absolutely have to. We'll see what happens. I was able to eat some cream of wheat last night and this morning....
I'm a nurse lookup Phenergan not sure it's class with pregnancy but I know it's a comparable anti-nausea drug similar to zofran
By the way, I know about Zofran also but it was prescribed to Joe last time when the compazine wasn't working that well, but our insurance said no because it is much more expensive. There is a generic Zofran now but it also is way more expensive than Phenergan and Compazine. I should have added that Joe didn't do all that much actual vomiting but he had lots of dry heaves. We tried some of the ginger cures also but no miracles there.
