Zofran not working

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran not working


I just want to say it is like night and day since they gave me a script for some , started today, I was up all last night vomiting, do not suffer ask your doctor for some!!
I took 8 mg of Zofran every 8 hours. I did not wait to get nauseated or start vomiting (although when I started taking it I was nauseated, vomiting, and bloated. Once I got some on board, then I was able to prevent the nausea and vomiting by taking it every 8 hours. I don't see (in this blurb) how long it takes to work, but I don't think it takes long. I think it works pretty fast. It might take a couple of doses before it reaches full effect because you are already nauseated.
But I paid close attention this weekend, and still got sick at the same time, so I am not sure if the Zofran is not working for me or just needs a time adjustment or I need to up the dose. Your input here helps, so thank you again everyone.
I know that I would be so weak I couldn't even stand in the shower or walk downstairs. REALLY difficult. Im not sure why the Zofran wont work with morning sickness. They can land on the moon..... but....... they cant come up with a cure for morning sickness. Take care and God bless.
I took Zofran but it was for an off label use not for nausea which is its general use. Although it does control nausea it can create it in a minor way so the best thing to do is eat food with it. And it can be a bit sedating. Long term for Zofran a liver function test is advised as was by my provider but that's true of many medications including what I am on now. With any medication you should speak to your provider for more information and you can go to the medication website in the meantime.
Hopefully others will chime in and let you know how they did working. I am retired so I did not have to work. I don't think I could have worked while on Incivek and for 3 months after that. However, that was because I had the Three Stooges for a treatment team and they had no clue how to treat side effects and no desire to do so. Had I been treated for the side effects as soon as they appeared, I probably could have worked, at least part time.
Ok, my nausea meds are just not working, don't want to show up again in ER, realize the pills are not as effective a the IV form, any suggestions? I've had protonix, zofran and am holding out on the phenergen until bedtime as it will kick butt If that doesn't work, am clueless know that nausea meds calm stomach so I can eat and if I don't, stomach acid multiplies........egads.........knock me out for a week!
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.
Ive just been prescribed zofran 4mg. It says to take one tablet four times a day but its $60 for a box of 10 and only have one repeat script. I think she wants me to only take it when I need it and stick to maxalon. How often do you need to take it ?
This is the drug I was prescribed for nausea during treatment. Thank goodness I am not having continuing problems with nausea. Something to look into to be aware! WASHINGTON -- A drug used to treat nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy may trigger dangerous and possibly lethal changes in heart rhythms, the FDA warned Thursday.
i did not and am sure that everyone is different. i lost so much weight down to 90lbs and i was not tired but WEAKNESS took over my life. i did not care about much, and i did not know anyone to help me. i learned a lot about my self during this time. i met another lady in my drs office she had hardly any side effects, this only made me more depressed but i learned QUICKLY just how different this drug affects people. i felt great then i just wanted to die. this is normal i am told.
Those were my 2 problems at the beginning I didn't start working until I was 5 months. My doctor gave me zofran for nausea and iron tablets that helped with the energy and now I'm good to go.
Im 26w5d and still working I couldnt imahine beinf 40 weeks and working though
Hi cyber people, As determined as I am to get through this, I am struggling on a lot of levels right now. Some tx related, some not. I think my biggest issue right now is......energy. I am exhausted but not weak. I CAN still make it up the stairs. I CAN usually still go to work. The nausea is better, depending on the day and how well I keep up with the eating/Zofran regimen. I only started working out mid to late January. Usually 3 days during the week.
I was prescribed zofran after I had a motorcycle accident and I got very nauseous from morphine and oxycodone and was having a hard time taking it even with the intense pain of several broken bones. The stuff worked great, the doc told me they use it for chemo patients. I am glad to hear it is making you feel better.
or suddenly stop working even when the dosage wasn't lowered. What they are identifying in me as a criteria "tardive psychosis" is done within standard psychiatric research and they believe it to be the reason. I just can't put the specific names in the post. But what are other more clinically known reasons that can occur? Since it happens to other people? What are some other known reasons that an antipsychotic at a therapeutic dose would stop working?
Hey everyone not a great last couple of days very sleepy and tired.Well I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced this before I have been gaging from my pills like right when I try to swallow them with a big glass of water theyjust come back up has anyone had that happen?also I was wondering I'm on week 3 soon but I'm scared cause I missed a couple doses of the pils due to the gaging ,what can happen and would that effect me when I go at 4 weeks testing?
Hello everyone, 25/M About a year ago I began experiencing some strange sensations which I sometimes have trouble finding the words to describe, but their presence is definitely there regardless. In a nutshell my symptoms seem to be fatigue, lightheadedness, "brain fog", trouble focusing, numbness and generally just feeling disconnected. I'm "not there" so to speak, both physically and mentally.
I can't help much other than to say, don't worry about it not working. Look at Andiamo. He too did tx many times and the triple tx worked for him. I hope you are have soothing music and lots of comedies to watch.
It's one reason I cannot read on treatment. The bowels also need to get under control. I used Loperimide as needed. If Loperimide is not working, they can prescribe Lomotil for the explosive diarrhea. As far as continuing on with treatment, only you can make that decision. Whichever decision you make needs to be made ASAP because, if you are going to continue treatment, you need to take the pills soon, very soon.
Jaybay, Thank you so much! If you had not mentioned the Zofran I would have not even thought about it and even having a script at the pharmacy! It was one of the first ones my doc sent to the pharmacy and when he told me how much it was I just filled the Phenergan and thought no more of the Zofran. You really saved me! I am feeling sooooo much better! My meds are working and I can eat and have finally got rid of the dreaded nausea! I just can't believe how much better I am doing!
I have had many bad days, foggy, dizzy, exhausted, headaches, muscle aches, nausea, sweats, but have not had the orifice issue. Very lucky I guess. I still had some days I could not get out. Of bed. I just started week nine, week 8 was probably my easiest so far. Don't know why. Week 7 was the worst. I was worried it was all downhill but it's been getting better. Prior to that I had up and down days, mostly down Sunday and Monday and starting to get better until Friday shot day.
With classes starting soon, not being able to afford to be not working, and my family beginning to think that I am not trying hard enough to get better, I have to find a new solution. I feel this question sounds naïve but I really don’t know what do since the doctors are currently not helping and I am still new to Chiari. I hope everyone had and enjoyable Christmas and New Years.
GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO!! GO GO!!!!!!!!!!!! can you not like ya know..Not sex but erm Oral but for your benifit... Because like a smear test but a homemade one...??? Sorry! But might help!!!!
I have been going mad as I have not been able to find out what it wrong with me, I also have not been told if I have got IBS or Crohn's Disease either so its doubly frustrating. For the past week or so I have not been feeling great, I have not been eating, I have hardly eaten anything at all actually, I am weak and feeling constantly tired and dizzy too. I wish there was an answer for what is wrong with me, I am tired of being taken into hospital with pain in my abdomen...
When will it end? I feel horrible! Nothing is working for me. Doctor prescribed Zofran but it only works briefly and then I'm back to feeling miserable. I am not able to function like this and it making it hard to do my day to day activities.
/ I'm sorry it worked for me enough to be able to tend to my son and have somewhat of a little appetite..hopefully you will grow out of it soon but you can always talk to your doctor and see what they think..baby should be fine though just try and stay as hydrated as possible!
She has very little improvement since the transfusion. She can walk a little better but I noticed she is not drinking as much as she needs and is not eating well at all. Last night she started vomiting and when I call or go over to check on her she is always sleepy. She has started taking her pain meds as directed so that may be part of her problem. I have called her son who is currently working out of state and he is trying to get leave from work to come home and help get her home health care.
