Zofran withdrawal

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran withdrawal


Avatar f tn I've lost 7 pounds since I've been pregnant due to the morning sickness and appetite loss, so my doctor prescribed me Zofran but I really don't want to take it. I'm sure y'all seen the commercials and I looked it up and it does cause those things. What should I do?
Avatar n tn These symptoms were not described during the withdrawal phase of the medication. The zofran could be causing the symptoms you are experiencing. Also, pregnancy itself can cause many of the symptoms you describe. Therefore, it may be a good idea to discontinue this medication under your doctor's care and see how you feel. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar f tn "DoseNation" article states zofran a common antiemetic (nausea) might help block opinoid withdrawl. "Naltrexone Therapy for Heroin Addiction, Alcohol Addiction, Immune Disorders and HIV "; Naltrexone produces an increase in the level of endorphins ect........... You can read about these if you search on the words in parenthesis. One of my Dr.s' agreed today to put me on Naltrexone to see if it will help eleminate the cravings.
Avatar m tn 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
Avatar n tn I am 23 weeks pregnant and have been taking a drug for nausea called Zofran. I take 8 mg. 3 times a day. About a month ago I started to taper down, halfing one of the doses at bed time. About 2 weeks ago I started experiencing heart palpitations and skipped beats. Also more anxiety symptoms. I also just cut out one of the doses a few days ago and the heart and anxiety issues are worsening. Could this be from withdrawal from this drug? Could I be "addicted" to it?
Avatar f tn My dr. just prescribed me Zofran for my nausea. Is anyone here taking Zofran while also taking Effexor for anxiety? Since they both deal with seratonin, my dr. wants me to have EKG's to monitor any interaction. Help!
Avatar n tn It's worked wonders for me and I'm down to my last prescription, but every time I forget to take my dosage for one day, I feel nauseous for the next three to four days and end up taking Zofran for the nausea and feel better when I get back on my doses. I'm worried therefore, that when I get off the Prilosec, will my symptoms return and will I be throwing up and feeling sick again? Or is it just a withdrawal symptom that will go away in time?
Avatar n tn With my own research, I am reading that my symptoms may well be withdrawal from my scopolomine patch. My question is whether this sounds like what may be causing my problem and if so, now what? What is the best course of action to get through the incapacitating symptoms and get off this patch?
Avatar f tn I am wondering if there is anything I can do to make the withdrawal process easier for him. I am also wondering if there are any resources I can utilize to help him. We are located near Syracuse, NY and all methadone clinics we found have a 6 month wait. Any advice at all would be appreciated, I've never taken anything stronger than Motrin so narcotics and withdrawals are not something I am familiar with!!
Avatar n tn I've tried to get off Paxil recently and had the WORST problems. After researching and talking to people who have gotten off (or tried to get off) of the drug I am horrified that Paxil is still being prescribed. I am also AMAZED that a DOCTOR would actually say that this isn't dangerous, or that it isn't the PAXIL!?!? Are you kidding? How much were you paid to say that? Paxil DID help with my panic attacks. Did not cure or stop them, but helped.
Avatar m tn Not without some discomfort, but after takeing prescribed 7,5 percs three times a day for a year and a half, why aren't my withdrawals that bad? I find this interesting. Could it be because of the zofran that helps me eat like a pig (healthy) and keep water down? Anyway,my pain is TOTALLY gone today. I've not had to take one ibuprofen and I feel very clear headed. A little tired as sleep was a little restless last night from dog awakening me.
Avatar f tn I have read the posts on Fentanyl patch withdrawal. While there is much information, none of them clearly state: How long does the withdrawal last? It has been 4 days. I was on 75 mg patches for about 6 months and stopped cold turkey 4 days ago. I decided I have to stop, regardless of what the pain specialist says. I want to be off these things. I have been through several symptoms but have some important things planned this week. I need to travel, I need to be attentive.
Avatar m tn Sleep has been a MAJOR help in all of this. The last withdrawal, I was INSANE with no sleep. It made the withdrawal unbearable. This time, I felt far more prepared. I am So excited. If I can beat it another few days, I'm out of the woods with the worst of it. FREE from this crap. BUT i am scared. I have two surgeries coming up, both that will require being on narcotics again. I don't want to get stuck on them again. I really, really don't and I am in total fear about it.
Avatar n tn I decided to stop taking the drugs and I am on withdrawal. I called two doctors who both said they could not help me. I thought I was having a heart attack, so went to emergency and told exactly that I thought I was going thru withdrawal. They agreed but said they could do nothing.They gave me bentyl for stomach cramps and zofran for vomiting. Both of which I did not need. My symptoms are aches everywhere but severe headache and unable to sleep for 3 days now.
Avatar f tn hello everyone.. whenever I've ever needed help or positive words I always checked this site.. for the first time today I created an account.. anyone will any help would be MUCH appreciated.. :) I began taking blues (roxicet) 30mg one at night every day or so in August 2010.. stopping for a few days or week at most.. in Sept 2011 I began taking much more.. by Oct/Nov I was doing 4 or 5 30mg & now all day long from the moment I woke up.. the number would go up to 7..
Avatar f tn But I wonder if I will be throwing up and constant diahrrea. My OB said some withdrawal is fine, as long as I am not risking dehydration or worse, as that could cause me to miscarry. I have take home medication every 2 weeks, and usually when I have to go in, I am a little uncomfortable bc the clinic does not open until 7 and I dose at 5-6. But I went from 20 to 15 mgs three days ago and I felt uncomfortable, could not sleep last night and it got worse.
1445257 tn?1289280526 I forgot to add that I was given a shot IM of Dilaudid for the pain and Zofran. I am having a horrible headache today, has anyone ever experienced this before with Dilaudid?
1697690 tn?1329127238 I'm also a little over a day myself today, 31 hrs to be exact, of 160mg of oxycontin withdrawal. The anxiety and sweats are by far my worst. I know I can get through this, I've been through this before and focused to be the last time. I want you to know you can get through this too, soon you will be feeling like other people are feeling off pills and it will be wonderful. I have too much to live for and I'm sure you do too.
Avatar n tn Could withdrawal happen after this length of time? Also how long should the withdrawal symptoms last? I will talk to my doctor about this, but she doesn't think Zofran can cause this. I am going back up the 3 doses at 8 mg a day and see if I feel better in a few days. Then I guess I am going to try a slower taper. What type of a taper would you recommend from this medication? I am having severe constant pvc's lately, so if they get better, I would like to avoid this issue.
Avatar f tn will these 2 tablets of tramadol prolong my withdrawal symptoms?? I have to go back to work in 3more days...i am going to be able to function??
5100586 tn?1363648354 I went to my doctor on Wednesday, and she thinks my symptoms at this stage of the game ( 43 days now) are more from the cymbalta than the lyrica, but they are very similar, almost identical, and are the most painful withdrawal situation I have ever been in. IT is lke being in opiate and benzo withdrawal at the same time, I have thought that I was going to die. Anyway, I am feeling better today thank goodness.
Avatar m tn I can't help but feel these stupid pills have something to do with it, so I am day one cold turkey, 18 hours into withdrawal. I'm taking ibuprofen, an extra half of my clonidine in the morning (Take one at night), to keep my anxiety and blood pressure down. I have zofran for nausea, drink a ton of water. My legs HURT something fierce and this has always been the reason I have gone back on, but this time I am determined.
Avatar f tn Just keep in mind Vitamins and Minerals are NOT going to let you off easy - the only way to get over opiate withdrawal is straight through it - head on. Since you are in raging withdrawal right now I would imagine you aren't going to feel much like assembling all this stuff but PLEASE go get the immodium. Many people say clonidine works for withdrawals with the RLS symptoms - if you are doing with with your doctors help you might ask him/her about that drug for you while detoxing.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if my withdrawal will be as bad? Im willing to do this and I know how stupid I am so please don't tell me about myself. I even said before I got them " ive got another buzz in me but I don't have another withdrawal. " so what the hell is wrong with me. Im done. I can get more but I don't want this anymore. Y he six days I had clean my life was so clear and I realized how much I missed out on ny kids life. I think the guilt overwhelmed me.
1448936 tn?1363209946 once the withdrawal starts the meds only do so much for the symptoms. I've got zofran for the nausea but its barely taking the edge off. I start cbt on monday actually which is why I'm being stepped down. My job has got incredibly high anxiety levels. My xanax usage sky rocketed once I started this job...it pays well but I'm thinking it's not worth it with the hell I'm going through now because of it. Ive only got 3 1/2 hours left at work then I'm off for 4 days which will be nice.
Avatar m tn Did any of you try to sleep through the first few days? I'm drinking a ton of water and taking the anti nausea zofran helps keep everything down. I find that as long as I can force myself to eat and drink water, it actually goes better. Has anyone else discovered this? I'm sorry for a double post. Just really scared and really wanting off these nightmares.
Avatar f tn I was going to die if not. Can someone tell me what the withdrawal timeline is? what are some of the symptoms of withdrawing off this? I am now off the patch for almost 12 days. I will NEVER They are frightened too. I need so much help here on what to expect. BLESS YOU ALL, and anyone who will help me on this. I really, really need to talk to someone who has been through this. My primary doc is not a detox/pain doctor.
7493588 tn?1391311292 Today, I get up as normal and start my day then about noon, I started to get very, very nauseous, diarrhea, jumpy, loud noises make me worse. I took some pepto pills until my pharmacy could get my generic Zofran filled and it helped a little. I thought I would eat something, thinking that might be the problem. When I finished eating I was ok for about 15 minutes after, then began to get very nauseous again. When I got my generic Zofran in my hand, I put one under my tongue.
768044 tn?1294227036 Makes sense that it happens as a SSRI withdrawal thing too. Prior to a migraine, your seretonin is supposed to drop dramatically, isn't it? Isn't that why the triptans help? So... maybe that is why that whole horrible disoriented pre-migraine thing happens... maybe it's a seretonin thing. And... so, maybe that's why it happens when I'm going through SSRI withdrawal too. Or if I accidentally overdose on SSRIs. Or... this could be a migraine. I did sleep all day.
