My first pregnancy (in which i ended up miscarrying) my doctor tried me on ilight>phenerganilight> ilight>andilight> 2 other kinds of nausea pills. i honestly didn't like the way ilight>phenerganilight> 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 ilight>phenerganilight> every 12 hrs ilight>andilight> in between ilight>zofranilight> every 8 ilight>andilight> it has worked for me!
ilight>zofranilight> 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.
ilight>zofranilight> is safe :). there are 2 nausea medicines that are considered safe for pregnancy, ilight>andilight> ilight>zofranilight> 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 ilight>zofranilight> is working for you. ilight>andilight> 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 ilight>zofranilight> now. Are any of you on it too? Has it helped?
Helped most of the time, but in extremes 8took ilight>phenerganilight>. Was also given ilight>zofranilight> 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 ilight>andilight> have been on ilight>zofranilight> for the past 17 weeks ilight>andilight> 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'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.

So i personally don't want to take any chances. Good luck whichever u choose.
ilight>zofranilight> works much better than ilight>phenerganilight> 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 ilight>andilight> a half before my 8 am Riba, again late afternoon, ilight>andilight> 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 ilight>andilight> still on ilight>zofranilight> 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 ilight>andilight> the ilight>zofranilight> isn't helping. They can help get nutrition to the baby ilight>andilight> could possibly prescribe something that will help you.
i think the combination of the ilight>zofranilight> ilight>andilight> my hormones caused major headaches, but ilight>zofranilight> is def not optional for me!
it works pretty well i take it every day still at 32 weeks ilight>andilight> i also take ilight>phenerganilight> too on occasion. They both work great for nausea.
i took every form of zofran, ilight>Phenerganilight>, ilight>andilight> even Thorazine (ilight>andilight> eventually had a PiCC line ilight>andilight> 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 ilight>phenerganilight> that you rub on your wrist ilight>andilight> 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 ilight>phenerganilight> ilight>andilight> on ilight>zofranilight> 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'm a nurse lookup ilight>Phenerganilight> not sure it's class with pregnancy but i know it's a comparable anti-nausea drug similar to zofran
i stopped taking the Prilosec as of this morning but i did take the B6 and stool softener. i'll take the ilight>zofranilight> every 8 hrs or so ilight>andilight> another B6 ilight>andilight> the folic acid ilight>andilight> 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....
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 ilight>zofranilight> now but it also is way more expensive than ilight>Phenerganilight> ilight>andilight> 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.
ilight>phenerganilight>/promethazine works for nausea ilight>andilight> itching/rash working great for me
feel constantly hot and want to remove layers of clothing want cool drinks look hot ilight>andilight> bothered ilight>andilight> red-faced feel irritable ilight>andilight> hot tempered Try sipping peppermint or spearmint tea. Sugar-free peppermint sweets or chewing gum may also help. Peppermint or spearmint essential oil will not suit everyone, as the strong smell could make you feel more sick. Herbal remedies Other herbal remedies worth trying include lemon balm tea, slippery elm lozenges, or small amounts of chamomile tea.
i took ilight>zofranilight> 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 ilight>phenerganilight> does not work, then ask for ilight>zofranilight>. ilight>zofranilight> 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.
