Zofran when pregnant

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran when pregnant

zofran

I saw a commercial today saying that if you were pregnant and took zofran that you and your child could get a financial compensation. The Zofran caused the baby to get cleft pallet. Has anyone heard of any issues with zofran?? I was on that for the longest time for my sickness!
i mean think about it doc used to think it was ok to smoke and drink when you were pregnant....
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?
I was prescribed Zofran 4mg. I took one yesterday and it was a miracle drug! However, when I looked up the safety online, I get mixed messages. I don't like to take anything while pregnant. I very rarely even took a Tylenol with my first two. I decided that I would only take the Zofran when I has somewhere to go and had to feel better. The problem is that today I didn't take one and I feel terrible. I have vomitted three times and don't feel like eating or dealing with my kids.

I am almost 36 weeks with my first baby and I took zofran and still do when I develop nausea. It really has helped me , but on the other hand everyone is different . I say just try it and if it doesn't work then tell your doctor and they will give you something different .(: Hope you feel better .
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.
-( ask you doctor about a pic line for iv zofran at home. In my opinion there's nothing better than zofran fur this and they c made mec try everything else before zofran nothing helped even nasty suppository!
It does work wonders though, I only take it when absolutely necessary. I've taken Zofran a few times with all three pregnancies.
What can I do for my morning sickness when my zofran only works for about 45 minutes? Crackers, water, eating, or carbonated drinks are not helping me either.
do you think I will still have side effects when I'm done if I take it slow?? and have you ever taken Zofran?? I haven't used it yet.
i have no energy!!! when i was pregnant with my son i remember it being bad...but at least then i could crawl in bed and be alone...its just so hard running around after a 2 1/2 year old...i feel bad for complaining...sorry to be so negative...its just so bitter sweet. I have one more appointment with my RE this week then i go back to obgyn...at least he knows me and my history. its gonna be a long road...i am only 7w2d...the great news is my hormones are working...lol..
While I was pregnant I was prescribed Zofran and my son was born with a severe deformation to both feet. I just saw on tv that there is a lawsuit going on concerning this. 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.
When I was pregnant with my daughter I took Zofran because I had "morning" sickness ALL DAY FOR 9 MONTHS!!! She is a happy, healthy 2 year old now!
Zofran is wonderful and safe, but expensive.
And I know people that have said that they lived off that stuff when they were pregnant and their babies were perfectly fine. This is one of the most common pregnancy drugs and now all of the sudden dangerous? I think I'm going to ask my doctor about it at my next appointment.
I walked down stairs after trying to eat my luch(without success) to talk to my OB(I work in a hospital) She prescibed me zofran. I read though that it should only be used when there is severe vomiting to the point where the woman is dehydrated. I have not been vomiting much but my nausea is terrible! Anyone know of any natural remedies for nausea before i turn to the drugs!
@teenmommy please cite your resource for this info.
Ladies if you are taking zofran to stop puking on those really bad sick days then stop. I seen tje commercial for the first time today. I took them 7 times.
I am 36 weeks pregnant and still dealing with MS. I have been taking Zofran since 5weeks and without it, I would not be able to go on with this pregnancy! Sometimes I joke that I will name my baby girl - Zofran baby! It is safw, but expensive. I would take it first thing before I got out of bed and then late in the afternoon. My MS was more like 24/7 sickness. By 7th month, I was only taking 1 pill a day and now I only need 1/2 pill and there are days I will not take it at all. Good luck!
This is just a informational post for any mommies who may be taking Zofran and also for mommies who took Zofran and gave birth to a baby with any defects.
When I was pregnant, the nausea was so bad, my doctor put me on Zofran. She said it was completely safe. My daughter is now 3 with many severe delays and sensory defensiveness. Never knowing what the cause was, I have talked to other mothers of delayed children and found they too took Zofran during their pregnancy. I am considering researching this more. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
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.
I give up! I tried it, and I was almost able to function without Zofran, but not quite. I threw up every morning, and was forced to spend lots of time in bed each day (only possible because I have the week off this week). I wasn't eating well, and started to become irritable when I needed to get out of bed and get things done. I was barely able to do the things that absolutely had to be done.
Got my scripts filled last night and I feel 99% better. The Zofran is a wonder drug...within a minute of taking it I felt better. I also took the phenergan at bedtime and it helped me sleep through the night. I have decided to stop the Benadryl and not wear the Sea-Bands because they were starting to make my wrists a little sore.
i know its frusturating when pregnant and cant sleep....its the worst! i feel for you...best of luck!
I am 36 weeks and three days pregnant with my second baby and i take zofran and i am still taking it. My first one i handled morning sickness on my own and didn't take anything for it and it got better as time went on it was also a boy. I am now pregnant with a girl and the morning sickness is so bad this time around so i asked my doctor about a nauseous medicine and she put me on zofran. At first i didn't wanna take it cuz i don't like taking anything when pregnant even if it is safe to take.
I have been on zofran just about every day for the past 4 weeks... Its perfectly safe to take while pregnant.
i been having moring sickness since i was 6 weeks i tryed not to any meds of it but then i couldn't handle it so i got some meds called promethazine i took it once and it made me feel high and it made me also throw up like an hour later. so then i heard that zofran is way better so i asked my doctor for it so he prescribe it but then i found out my insurance does not cover it and i would have to pay 100$for 30 pills.
