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
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....
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.
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.
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....
I think the combination of the Zofran and my hormones caused major headaches, but Zofran is def not optional for me!
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....
phenergan/promethazine works for nausea and itching/rash working great for me
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.
i took zofran all through this last pregnancy (from about 13wks until delivery at 36wks). no problems with me or the baby because of it. it's better for you to take the med and be able to eat because the baby needs it. i never had any side effects from it, and my little girl had no extra problems from it. good luck to you and your little one.
I took 8 mg every 8 hours for a few months. Don't let this go. It will snowball. If the phenergan does not work, then ask for Zofran. Zofran does not make you sleepy. Phenergan does. Phenergan is cheaper, but Zofran works better (in my opinion). It is used to treat the nausea from Chemo. Plus, as youi said, if you vomit enough doses, it may affect treatment outcome. Hope you get relief soon.
Zofran or phenergan works amazing
I've never heard of that being perscribed in pregnancy, I take zofran and or phenergan ...
I've had every antinausea medication under the sun.. I currently have a port and I give iv fluids, iv zofran, and iv phenergan at home. I hang a bag of zofran every 6 hours and inject phenergan every 4 hours (even when I'm not pregnant!) I've had the reglan and to me it just doesn't work that well. I like the zofran better, but phenergan is my life line. I have sever nause, vomitting, and pain so I have to take all of them. I'd start with the zofran. Do you have both??
She is taking the following ani-nausea medicines zofran every 8 hours and taking promethazine every 4 hours. Does anyone have any suggestions to help with the nausea? Also if you are on or have had cisplatin , please let us know what your dosage is and how bad the nausea is? Her intial treatment was ( i think ) 160 mg and it is to be given every 28 days. her DR is planning on either doing a reduce dosgae every 2 weeks or 1 a week to help reduce side effects...
Zofran and Phenergan are a class C. I was given Diclegis. It works amazing. And I occasionally take ginger root.
They had me on zofran and phenergan in all three pregnancies and i ate lots of bread stuff. Like plain waffles and toast i also too my medicine a couple hours before bed and when i woke up at 2 or 3 am so when i got up at 6 or 7 i wasnt feeling bad. Also i never seemed to throw up fresh fruit, but i always threw up milk.
I had been told to stay away from fatty foods, citrus, alcohol so I didn't think it was THAT bad. I popped Zofran (nausea pill) that night and fell asleep. I worked 11.5 hours on Black Friday on 6 hours of sleep and came home to nap. I awoke an hour later feeling like I was about to BARF. I popped a nausea pill and hung over the toilet for another 15 min before it sorta went away. And I am fine today. This is like the 2nd time that type of nausea has happened.
Ive had nausea and vomiting since 6 Weeks. my doctor put me on Zofran and it helps so much!!
I was told at first I could ONLY take Zofran and only 4 mg also, but I pitched a FIT when it didn't work and they finally opened up more options. Best wishes, and feel free to pm me any time.
I also have phenergan but I can only take it at night because it puts me right to sleep. Now I have Zofran which I took last night and it did basically nothing for my nausea and I ended up getting a bad stomach ache afterwards! Not good. I have valium which I like to take when I feel the anxiety rise and nausea isn't too bad. I only take 2.5mg and that usually gets me by for many hours. Have any of you tried any of those anti nausea drugs and which ones did you like?
I would have tried zofran, but they were so costly and at the time I didn't have insurance. So it was all outta pocket. I use phenergan and have mostly lived on that, and aside from knocking me out it helped with the nausea.
