Zofran for babies

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran for babies


I took zofran from the time I was 2 months pregnant until birth for severe morning sickness . My son was born with no hand . I dont know if theres a coneection .
I have taken it for almost my entire pregnancy three times....my babies were fine. I would have died if I didn't have it.
Just thought i should share cuz apparently some women who have taken zofran while pregnant had babies with cleft lips or paletes http://www.nationalinjuryhelp.
I am 14 weeks pregnant and my morning sickness has suddenly increased very bad I called thr dr today and the nurse gave me a prescription for zofran so far it's helped me and it says there are no side effects to me and my baby but some thing I was reading online says about causing cleft palates has anyone else taken this and is your baby perfectly fine?
So I've been seeing all this negative stuff about zofran causing all kinds of birth defects to unborn babies. I'm 30 weeks pregnant & I've been taking zofran my entire pregnancy, so it's worrying me. Has anyone else taken zofran? What are your opinions on it?
Is it safe to take zofran during pregnancy. My doctor perscibed it to me for nausea. But then i got freaked out about a commercial i saw in tv about zofran causing birth defects.
I could not get to a pen fast enough so if anyone has the number please let me know ASAP. Thank you. Please don't anyone take Zofran for any reason during pregnancy.
But I suggest calling your doctor and pharmacist but to warn you I am sure there has not been any trials of zofran on infants or unborn babies. The national council only approved zofran officially for cancer patients and adults with severe nausea. After I heard this I have decided its better safe than sorry. Hope this helps.
How about promethazine is that safe?
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 called the RE's office this morning to see if he will go ahead and prescribe me Zofran for the nausea...I don't remember throwing up this much with Travis and at least with him, I could eat meat - This one - Nadda.
I had to go to the hospital last week for dehydration and they prescribed me Zofran and said I had signs of Hypermesis. The Zofran helps to keep food down, but the side effects make me feel awful too. Not to mention I feel really bad taking meds while pregnant as I rather things natural. It has been a full week and I want to stop taking them. Has anyone experienced hypermesis.
I've even lost weight from it since I found out I was pregnant. My first 2 pregnancies I was prescribed zofran for nausea. I was told it's very safe, very few side effects. And it did actually take away my nauseousness. But as I said I lost both those pregnancies, one at only about 6 weeks one at about 14 weeks. However I saw on the TV that zofran causes birth defects! So of course I did more research. Zofran is a class C drug.
Be careful with zofran. I've seen t.v. commercials recently for lawsuits in regards to taking it for nausea and baby having birth defects. That seems scary, but I can only imagine how your feeling. Hang in there. Its really nice being able to talk to other pregnant woman. This is my bf's first and he is like clueless. Keep in touch.
I was hospitalized, homecare with iv, every med you could take etc. I am still on zofran now and it is working wonders for me. It is safe. I used it during my first pregnancy but it did not help, but this time success. It does make constipation a bit worse. But I would rather be clogged up than vommiting 24hrs a day.
Other than that I'm sleepy and I take zofran sometimes for nausea. Other than that I hope I start to gain weight soon because I lost a lot of weight in the first couple weeks Cuz I couldn't really eat.
Due april 18th my nausea woke me up this morning. Thanks to zofran i was able to get down 3 crackers. Symptoms are of course nausea,what feels like constant headaches, and no matter how long i sleep or if i just woke up I'm still tired or ready to lay back down!
EDD is july 7th. i wish this pregnancy was like my 1st. i wasnt sick at all, i didnt gain any weight until like 5-6th month. but in this case i get nauseous if im hungry, which makes me not want to eat. im starting to show already, none of my pants fit but i havent gained any weight bc im not eating a lot lol >.<. if my bladder gets full i start contracting, nobody wants braxton hicks this early! and of course exhausted all the time.
Maybe this is my girl and this is a sign of all the headache i will be in for. Maybe this is my payback for all the headache i gave my own mother. -this is the only thought bringing me through, because seriously, i dont know how im going to make it until December. Any morning (all-day) sickness suggestions? To all the December mommies, maybe we can keep in touch since we have one big thing in common. Seems like most ladies in here are due this summer.
Are u guys excited ? What has the experience been like so far ?? I'm just nauseous lol. But I just got zofran and its like magic !!
Maybaby and number3onherway you are in my thoughts and am hoping yoour bodies will be able to keep the babies in for a little bit longer. But if not I have heard that its mostly lung development left answering a bit of weight. Our babies are now making sufficant to help them breath onvtheir own when they are borne but the rest is fine and I have heard of a short for speeding lung development.
if your insurance does not cover this drug or any drug, call around and price compare and don't suffer like I did for several more days. Generic Zofran worked great for me once I got it.
Hey, call me boting but for a boy I like Julian or Matthew, and for a girl Leanne.But at 8 weeks we haen't given it much thought.
Ask your doctor for phenergan or zofran for nausea. Im also on the progesterone shots weekly. I have to stay on them til 37wks. Iv had 2 miscarriages one died at 11wks and I didn't know til I was 15wks. My second I lost at 17wks my baby was perfectly healthy I found out I have a weak cervix. Im now 12+5 the shots haven't made me sick but the progesterone capsule does sometimes. Im on 5 different prescriptions. The shot, progesterone capsule, foltx tablets, profe forte, and citranatal.
I tried to get my do for to write ms zofran but she refused until u was 12 weeks to ensure the baby was a little maturer but by time I hit the end of 7 weeks my nausea was gone. I did try these things called sea band mama! Their ginger tablets and they helped some but I only found them at a CVS.
