zofran

AFM- Didn't know if you guys knew that my daughter is 33 weeks pregnant with her 1st baby. I was very mad at her for getting married so young (17) and getting pregnant 3 months after her marriage... But anyways I went to visit her today after not seeing her for bout 2 months and she's huge!!! Her belly button is completely popped out. I was in tears showing her all the stuff I had bought her for the baby...
For instance, a number of essential oils aren't good for pregnant women. Also, too much vitamin A, even in over-the-counter preparations (usually called retinyl or some version of that word), should be avoided. Even witch hazel, according to a seemingly well-versed woman in the health food store, should be used with restraint. I am currently using Weleda's rose soap and rose eye cream, both approved by the database.
the dopiness mentioned was more of a drugged out stupor for me and only occurred at dosage changes. Tingling in the fingers or toes lessens over time; occasionally have bad days. I do tend to have numbness in the tips of my fingers most of the time. These things I've gotten use to. What I've finally discovered from reading here, is the cause of the hair loss which was extreme over the last six months.
Again, I am doing this under the supervision of my OB, they are doing extra appointments to check the baby and response to dosage decrease and they are prescribing me Zofran for nausea and something else for diahhrea. I asked for clonidine and Ativan but they said because I am pregnant that those drugs need to be given under more closer observation. I tried going to a rehab facility and called the best one in my area and they wont take me.
i was prescribed lortab 7.5's for the first 6 months i was pregnant. and i looked it up on the net on a medical site and it said it was ok to use the lortab if u truly need it and it wouldnt affect the fetus. so i wouldnt worry bout it and im sure the doc wouldnt let u take something that will hurt the baby.
I know that doesn't sound like a lot compared to what a lot of people are on but the withdrawal is still unbearable for me anyway. I recently found out I am pregnant and have for the last week been trying to quit cold turkey and have been failing miserably. I feel like such a selfish, low life, piece of scum but my withdrawal symptoms are so intense I keep giving in within 24 hours.
Just be careful I saw your post and I remembered ton of commercials I've seen on this. Zofran Lawsuits Doctors prescribe Zofran (ondansetron) to pregnant women as a treatment for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Unfortunately, studies link the medication to birth defects, and families are taking drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline to court, saying it marketed the drug to pregnant women without FDA approval. Was your child born with birth defects after taking Zofran?
-) As for me I feel ok for the most part. I am still having trouble with food but THANK GOD I haven't lost anymore weight. I hope that after the 1st 12 weeks I'll love food again. I have the same thing as Aleks. I get hungry but never know what I want. Sometimes what I think I want tastes horrible. Yesterday I had a few kosher pickles and they were good. My DH and mom were laughing at me while I ate them and offered me ice cream.
Within days, I felt better than I had felt in years. Then, 2 weeks later, I got pregnant for the first time. My husband and I had been trying for a while. I have a beautiful 8 month old now. Also, I had become intolerant of several foods, such as all dairy, and now I can tolerate these foods again. Just not gluten. And I was totally unaware of the problem before I went gluten free (could not see any connection between how I was feeling and the consumption of gluten).
It took almost a WHOLE month for her to show positive for pregnant. I mean you are alittle further than a month though. Have you got an ultrasound? I read blogs were women didnt get a positive test result at all and got an ultrasound and found a quite viable baby in the uterus!!
Diclegis didn't work for me. I had to take Zofran. I'm scared to take it too but that's the only thing that was working for me. I only take it if I absolutely need it. I've had complications staying hydrated and eating anything so I'm hoping it gets better.
I am taking Zofran (1/2 dosage) for pretty bad m/s - and I read somewhere that Zofran can cause constipation - don't know if this is true or not. In any case, can anyone recommend something that will work on an ongoing basis? I tried milk of magnesia - and that did work for one BM the next day - but unless I take it every day - the problem just returns....and I don't want to take that every day. I've also been taking stool softeners - not helping.
I know about zofran i get an off brand of it and i dont take it often only had to use it 3 times
i was prescribed zofran for my nausea....maybe ask for a different prescription?
4000 mg a day is not safe for pregnant women that's like taking 8 extra strength tylenols in a day. That's not even safe if your not pregnant I think the max in a day is 4 if not. My doctor told me not more than 500 mg a day. I would check with your doctor because the sleep aid in tylenol pm may not be safe while pregnant. I would try benadryl instead.
I never vomited but was always disgusted by food, nauseated to death, dizzy, crabby and unable to focus. It's normal for many pregnant women but yes I am sure the girl needs help! At least for a while. Nice you're there for her! I lost 6 lbs btw but as long as you're not dehydrating (vomiting) and keeping the prenatals down they kind of expect that. Good luck!
With that said use the phengran at night and ask for Zofran during the day. Zofran works just like phengran without the drowsiness and is used mostly with pregnant women since it does not have the side effects.
I took it during my 2nd and 3rd trimester and Jazmine is perfectly fine. It is routinely prescribed for pregnant women who suffer from panic attacks, insomnia, or allergies. It is also used during the labor process if a women needs help relaxing a little. I took it on an as-needed basis.
Looking for advice/support. Almost 8 weeks pregnant and experiencing horrible morning sickness (that lasts all day sometimes) my doctor just prescribed me some anti nausea meds to help since I can't eat and have lost a few lbs so far. I'm a hairdresser and so I'm very busy during the day and I've had to call in a couple times now because I couldn't leave the bathroom and my bed. The thought of all the chemical smells and long days had me calling in.
I'm taking zofran as well. It seemed to work pretty good the first few weeks and now it does nothing. I have found that biscuits seem to help me. No butter or anything on them. I'm 10wks 2 days now. I was very sick with my son as well and the only thing that helped then was the motion sickness bracelets. My dr at the time wouldn't give me any kinds of meds so that was my only relief :/ but it worked and it was better than nothing.
Also eating small meals throughout the day (5-6) instead of larger meals, for some reason pregnant women can't hold down lots of food haha. If you're doing both of these things already I'd ask your OB, they can give you suckers that will help stop the nausea, or medicine if it's bad enough. If you go too long with morning sickness/day sickness it can cause a slow weight gain or dehydration so I'd definitely get it taken care of!
I went into the ER 3 days ago for a bad migrane (1st since pregnant) and after the hospital she kindof balled up and is barely moving. I have been constipated since, thinking maybe the meds they gave me. 2 straight nights my stomach feels very tight and just full. She is moving but only a few times a day. I don't go to the Dr until Thursday but should I be worried????
If you are still sick try to see about getting a prescription for Phenegren and one for Zofran. Phenegren is for at night and the Zofran is for during the day. Since the Ph has a sleeping aid in it. If you don't want a precription the Unisom at night and the B-6 during the day. The combination of these two should help.
Lol I have friends that smoked weed their entire pregnacy and NOTHING is wrong with their children. Usually if a pregnant women smoke weed its so they have an appetite to eat. I mean damn if you don't eat then your really neglecting yourself and the baby! So for all the negative comments DISMISS yourself from even answering the question because CLEARLY you don't or won't understand. Smoke if you want to honey! Weed that is not cigarettes though.
He was disappointed there isn't a patch with a lesser dose and suggested I cut it in half. I asked him for Zofran instead and said I'd work it out with Meclizine and Zofran as mentioned above. Its been 48 hrs. since I took the patch off and the Zofran helped the nausea but the vertigo seems to come and go. I'm praying I don't get another full blown case of it but I will not cut the patch nor use one again.
I was one of the thousands of women who took Benedictin in 1977 and 1980 for nausea and vomiting during both of my pregnancies. My oldest daughter has poly-cystic ovary disease and has suffered with endometriosis for approximately 15 years, She had been unsuccessful during all of these years to get pregnant but just this week we have gottnen the news that her first invitro treatment was successful and she is due to give birth in late August 2008 or early September.
If upping the prilosec doesn't work, ask for another PPI -- Nexium often has good results. Also, ask your doctor about Zofran, an anti-nausea drug desgined for chemothreapy patients often used for hep-c induced nausea. Meanwhile, you should probably eliminate any gastro irritants and reflux triggers such as coffee, chocolate, citrus fruits/juices and tomatoe sauce.
I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
