Zofran nausea and vomiting

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran nausea and vomiting


It is a serotonin 5-HT3 receptor antagonist used mainly as an antiemetic (to treat nausea and vomiting), often following chemotherapy. Its effects are thought to be on both peripheral and central nerves. Ondansetron reduces the activity of the vagus nerve, which deactivates the vomiting center in the medulla oblongata, and also blocks serotonin receptors in the chemoreceptor trigger zone.
Worked awesome for the nausea and sickness... I then got constipated..
I don't know about heart defects but the hospital gave it to me at 21wks and 26wks for severe nausea and vomiting. It gave me terrible constipation but baby's heart is fine according to last scan at almost 32wks.

I am currently 24 weeks and have been taking zofran for the past 16 weeks... It's helped me immensely.
I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis at 6 weeks pregnant (chronic nausea and vomiting). I lost 32 pounds in my first trimester and did not eat my first real meal until I was 16 weeks. Zofran saved my life!!!! The pills didn't work because I would throw them up so I have a Zofran pump that pumps Zofran into my stomach 24 hours a day! The doctor also has me on Reglan too; which pretty much does the same thing as Reglan.
I am 7 weeks but I depend on it because my nausea and vomiting is really bad but want my baby to be safe.. Thanks!
I was hesitant too at first but my nausea and vomiting was so bad I couldn't even work. I was miserable and thought I was going to die. It really helps a lot, even if it doesn't take 100% of the feeling away. I think I started it around 9 weeks and would only take it if I had to be somewhere like work, church etc....if you're loosing weight it'll be better for you to take it then to not.
At 6 weeks I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG); which is chronic nausea, vomiting , dehydration and weight loss. I was on Zofran (every 4 hours) and Reglan (every 6 hours). It wasn't really working because I would throw it up! When I was 10 weeks the doctors put me on a 24 hour Zofran pump that automatically pumps the meds into my stomach. That has been working a lot better.
It took me a while before I could start eating close to normally again. I was in the exact same situation. The zofran will help your nausea and vomiting but I'm now almost 32 weeks and still get full pretty quickly, although I can eat more of a variety now. Just keep taking your prenatals and eat whatever you feel you can handle.

Im tired of this Im to the point where I'm depress and all I do is cry because it's non stop nausea and throwing up. my doctors don't take me serious when I say I don't feel right not only that I can't seem to eat but can't keep the stuff I do ea down , or howget cramps badly because I go time without eating . idk what to do no more,thankfully my fiancé is so supportive when he's home and my mother when he is at work.
that is, it causes your body to react to vomiting, and causes the INVERSE of vomiting. Thats the principle of homeopathy, to use a small dose of something, to cause its opposite. Notice i said IPECAC 30X. That is, its diluted 30 times.
If that does not work, then you probably need a prescription for Zofran which blocks the nausea and vomiting (which is caused by the drugs). Many of us used Zofran. It works very well for most of us. 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.
I took zofran with my first and I am on it now with my second. It has done wonders for me this go around in my 2nd tri. Only thing is the darn constipation.
Anyone knows anything i can take to stop vomiting im eight weeks and i cant keep nth down not even water.
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 have used peppermints and zofran which isnt really helping but drink a little sprite sips at a time and that may help. You may need tp talk to your dr.
Or I would ask your obgyn for a prescription of zofran-its a lil strawberry tasting,dissolvable pill for nausea.. and also non harmful to the baby ..phenergan works too.. good luck!!
( I'm nauseous an hungry at the same time. Smells are so sensitive to me now, things that never bothered me make me sick just off the smell .. If you haven't already ask your doctor to prescribe you something for it. Im taking zofran to help w/ my nausea an vomiting but that's not even working for me :( hopefully you'll have better luck!
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.
I was prescribed zofran for nausea and throwing up and I started taking it at 7 weeks and I'm still taking it at 16 weeks 2days. It helps a lot! And peanut butter helped a lot too! And tea!
I've tried zofran, but I don't like it, it doesn't really help me, and my doctor told me not to take it often(as it's not 100% safe), and I've tried peppermint, it helps the nausea, but not the vomiting, I've tried crackers, and cheese, none of that helped, and ginger ale doesn't help either. It's gotten so bad that I've puked up blood more than once, and when I checked with the doctor they just keep telling me I tore my esophagus from being sick so frequently.
I am 35 weeks pregnant and I am still having nasua and vomitting now and then. Is this normal ? I have not gain much weight during this pregnancy only about 12 pounds. With my first son I gained 30 pounds but this pregnancy is completely different, back pains, nasua and vomiting since my first month, lack of appetite etc.... is any one experiencing this too?
I'm 9weeks pregnant and i don't know if its healthy or normal to be vomiting every morning when i try and brush my teeth and i vomit yellow since i don't have anything in my stomach?????????
But now makes 3 times that I have started vomiting and not been able to stop. To the point of vomiting up stomach acid. One of those times I popped a blood vessel (capillary I guess) and was vomitng blood. This week has been 2 different times already. Of course we all know what wretching does to your head. The more you vomit the worse your head hurts. It just starts a vicious cycle of pain. Wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this.
When I got pregnant this time it wasn't planned and all I thought about was oh no here comes the sickness and vomiting..when ur sick time the days go by so slow...just wait now u can't eat but when our able to our going to be eating like Two horses...being pregnant is such a beautiful thing...is this your first?
I went back to my doctor and they prescribed me some medication for the nausea and vomiting but that medication doesn't seem to help . This is my first time pregnant . Ive tried Gatorade , Ginger Ale , Fruit , and etc .
I'm in the 11th week also and I had nausea and vomiting often . It got to the point where I had to go to the ER for fluids but I have been prescribed Zofran which works really well.
