Common Questions and Answers about Zofran nausea and vomiting


I am currently 24 weeks and have been taking zofran for the past 16 weeks... It's helped me immensely.
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 am the mother of four grown children, I had severe nausea, vomiting right up through my 7th month, I lost more than 20 lbs during my pregnancy and I had to work and function regardless of the nausea and vomiting. We did not have the convenience of "a pill" to take nausea away. We had to tough it out, vomit our guts up, and did it without putting our babies at risk.
The benefit of not being sick to your stomach is worth any risks that could be associated with it. Nausea and vomiting can lead to dehydration and nutritional loss which is very bad and risky for baby.
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 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?
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.
I'm experiencing extreme nausea am vomiting... I am 7 weeks...my doctor prescribed me zofran...I am scared to take it because I've seen a commercial about it..I took half a tab today. And I threw that up.
I had to have it in both of my deliveries due to nausea and vomiting (seems I am a total wimp and that is part of my pain reaction). Listen to any drug add and they, at the very end, list a couple of things that according to the package inserts on these drugs is are very low but legally they have to mention them in order to broadcast an ad. They are at the bottom of any written ad as well.
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.
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.
I'm part of a group of 3000 moms, all of who have been on Zofran, and not one of them has had issues from the Zofran. I'm on it myself, along with Diclegis. I've had 5 ultrasounds this pregnancy and my baby is perfectly healthy. Don't buy into those stupid lawyer commercials, they don't give you the full information.

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.
Anyone knows anything i can take to stop vomiting im eight weeks and i cant keep nth down not even water.
At week 25 I was able to take a zofran at 5 am and feel almost normal all day. I still get up at 5 am every morning and take a zofran and I am fine. If I don't take it I'm vomiting. I think some of us are just not blessed as others. My mom or my sister never had any trouble in their pregnancies. Nothing helped me either ginger, crackers etc. I was in the hospital many times in the very beginning BC I couldn't keep fluids down.
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.
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.
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!
They are all natural and are infused with natural oils that help with nausea, also with the prenatal vitamins I take half at night and the other in the am. Try the sniff test. Smell it first. If it smells funny it's not gonna work with your tummy. I did all of this and it worked wonders for me.
