Common Questions and Answers about Zofran while pregnant

zofran

It is perfectly fine to take while pregnant I took it threw out my first pregnancy and I'm currently taking it now threw my second pregnancy :)
So has anyone taken zofran while pregnant? I try to stay away from all medicine except my vitamins but the other night I ate something and I'm guessing my baby really didn't like it because I've been kind of sick since then but the other night the nausea was unbearable so I took one. Its only 4mg and Ive had it just laying around forever and I felt so much better when I took it but then I felt like crap after I did it because I looked it up online and it said not to take while pregnant!
Were any of you mommies given zofran while prego and had a healthy baby? Before I heard anything about zofran they gave me 1 dose through an IV at the hospital.. And now I'm really scared. I told my doc and she didnt say anything. Send positive comments my way please!
Zofran is the most recommended medicine for nausea while your pregnant .
many women are prescribed Zofran for bad morning sickness while pregnant. DO NOT TAKE IT! A dear friend of mine took it while pregnant with her first child and it gave her baby a cleft lip and palate and her baby had chronic seizures and just passed away a few months ago. Many court cases are now being conducted against this product. Please pass this on so we can all have healthy babies.
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.
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. What is the right thing to do?
Ok about this Zofran nonsense. I took it while pregnant with my 5 month old daughter. Your doctor would absolutely not put you and your baby in harms why. So ignore the stupid commercials. I was gonna call my doctor this morning to get perscribed something for my nausea but it went away. And she normally perscribes Zofran. You absolutely cannot believe everything you see on t.v. and the internet.
I lost 33 pounds while pregnant with my daughter. She is 3 years old and perfect in every way. I am not saying that some people won't have side effects from it but it is probably being blown way up because if it was proven to be extremely dangerous doctors wouldn't prescribe it. In the 60's women were given thelydamide for morning sickness and it ended up causing severe birth defects and was banned because of it.
Ok I saw your comment but I have a home nurse and she told me anything I take while being pregnant the baby is at risk and I just don't understand how and why would they prescribe.
If you are worried, you can call your local pregnancy hotline. Zofran is the only thing keeping me eating and drinking while pregnant. I ended up in the ER without it. LOVE IT!

Why take a medicine while pregnant that was not tested on humans it doesn't say every signed person who takes it while pregnant will have a baby with a birth defect but while taking it in your first trimester it's risky plus it has never been tested for morning sickness just cancer patients and after surgery patients everyone is different just because your children are fine doesn't mean the next woman will have healthy children there is a risk plus again it's never been tested by the FDA for the
Are any of your doctors agaist zofran?
I had to take it for months it will keep you from being sick.
I understand there are risk for ANYTHING you do while pregnant but I'd rather not up the Annie. Once again tho I'm sorry if I offended anyone I just wanted to know if anyone had the same concern as me since its all doctor try to throw at you.!
-( 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!
5 MG and now I’ve broke pen the capsule and I’m taking 45 pellet of the 105 that are in the capsule … I went to my Doctor who said I should be able to quit it by now and I went two days with out it and I feel like I’m going to die. He gave me Zofran for the nausea but I’m afraid to take it because I don’t trust him now. Will Zofran help? Has anyone else taken it?
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.
Ok im sure all of us have heard by now about the risks of taking zofran while pregnant and how their is a large lawsuit being formed from women who took zofran and their child was born with cleft pallet or lip. I am now 27 weeks and 4 days. I remembered that when i got in a car accident back in November i was perscribed perkaset for pain, and ondansentron (zofran) for nausea from taking the perks. At that time i was either 12 or 13 weeks.
Zofran is wonderful and safe, but expensive.
I took zofran for quite a while and my baby is fine.
I bought dolcolax laxative but called my doc before I took it and they said that med wasn't on the list of meds to take while pregnant. I'm only 7 1/2 weeks. So I'm waiting for the nurse to call me back to let me knw what I can take. I'll make sure to bring up the possibility of taking a suppository. Also I just drank a full glass of prune juice and man its soo gross. Blah!
I'm 14 weeks pregnant with my first child and I've had severe nausea and vomiting to where I've lost almost 20 pounds. My doctor gave me Zofran and I was wondering if anyone has had complications, birth defects, or know anyone who has.
I took zofran for a few weeks and now while I still have nausea I noticed I can keep it under control as long as I am sucking on something. I carry around a bag of jolly ranchers and that keeps me from feeling too sick inbetween meals. I imagine the preggie pops are the same concept.
Yes they can give you the pill. The preacription they give out will have the name Promethazine on the bottle and they give you 25 mg pills. It'll make you sleepy though so be careful.
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.
My OB prescribed me this for my nausea and like a dumb dumb I goggled the side effects and they seem like they outweigh the benefits. Has anyone else taken this drug while pregnant?
