Zofran not working

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran not working

zofran

Does anyone still get sick after taking zofran? I feel like its not even working. My last pregnancy I was sick the whole time to. Im only 11 weeks long way to go!
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.
Ok so I know there are a lot of working moms to be out there. How do you handle the vomiting and nausea and still go to and stay at work? 14 weeks and have been so sick all the to me its hard to stay at work or go to work. I started taking those anti nausea and anti vomiting medicine it worked for 2 weeks now im struggling again. I'm constantly nauseous or vomiting. I'm barely holding on to my job.
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.
Now that I'm 36 weeks, I throw up at least once a day and it's always unexpected. The zofran isn't working anymore :/ anyone go through this too?
When I had morning sickness zofran was my best friend worked like a charm
Hi i have been taking tramadol for over 3 years but for 2 only once in a while last year i had a very huge family problem and threw my self on the pills, end up taking 7/8 pills (50mg) a day for about 4 months,I'm now on my second day of withdrawal and I'm not so bad yet, the worse is the energy levels, I'm taking tubercoulosis treatment so my Doctors have me Zofran for the side effects of the treatment and I'm taking the chance to use the zofran they have me to kick the habit as far as possible
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.
Dicelgis should be taken at night because it makes yu tired I took that and it helped me sleep and made me feel not nauseous. Not sure about zofran cuz my OBGYN doesn't like it.
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 ?
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.
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.
Zofran worked for my first pregnancy but it did not for this one. This one is twins though so maybe that's why. It does constipate you almost immediately though!
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.
