Zofran helped (somewhat) with severe morning sickness

By 

from Kaneohe, HI

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

I suffered from terrible morning-noon-and-night sickness throughout the first 5 months of my pregnancies. With my second pregnancy, my doctor prescribed Phenergan, which I quit taking after a few pills since it wasn't working. By my third pregnancy, a new drug called Zofran was available, so my doctor prescribed this. I was still hesitant to take drugs during pregnancy, but I was throwing up everything (even water) multiple times per day, so I thought I'd try it.

In a sense, it was more effective than the Phenergan had been. I still felt constant nausea, but I didn't actually vomit as often. However, it did cause me to become terribly constipated for the first time in my entire life! It was a bad enough experience that I decided to quit taking Zofran. It wasn't worth the constipation, especially since I still felt awful. Also, I couldn't shake the feeling that the drug could possibly be affecting my baby (although my doctor assured me that it was about as safe any drug during pregnancy could be). The next few months weren't pleasant, but my baby and I made it through okay.

Zofran is a life saver during pregnancy!

By 

from Apache Junction, AZ

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

I have used Zofran during both of my pregnancies, and will probably have to use it for any subsubquent pregnancies as well. I get morning sickness every day of every pregnancy from about 1 month on, and it only gets worse during labor. During both of my labors, I was on an IV drip of Zofran to try and stop me from puking the whole time. For my first pregnancy, I only got Zofran after begging my doctor for something better than Phenegran at 4 months. It was literally a miracle drug. It didn't make me feel completely better, but I was able to at least keep food down (which helped me gain almost 40 pounds). Unfortunatley, it is very expensive, so if you do not have good insurance, or any insurance, it can be problematic. Luckily, there is a generic now, so that is what I used for my second pregnancy, and it was a lot cheaper.

The best prescription drug on the market

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

Going through what I am going through, and being allergic to the other anti-nasea medications, I was given Zolfran so I wouldn't get any sicker. These liittle tablets work wonders. They save me from throwing up, however, the only warning I need to put out there is not to drive after taking one. It makes you kind of high feeling.

what a miracle drug

By 

from Portland, OR

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

With my first child zofran was the miracle drug for me, it worked immediately and i could function and work and had a great pregnancy. with my second child nothing helped for about the first 2 months. i was in and out of the hospital, getting IVs and just feeling so discouraged. Well to make a long story short i kept trying the zofran to see if it would work like it did for my first pregnancy. Finally near the end of my first trimester it kicked in and i felt a world of difference. i couldn't have made it without this drug. i tried everything under the sun, even if it sounded crazy i tried it. It is insanely expensive but i am so gratefully i got an some specially arrangements made so it was covered by my insurance, a total heaven sent. I truly think i would have gone crazy without the freedom this drug gave me to a somewhat normal life while pregnant. It does make you me constipated but i take stool softeners and that seems to help alot.

This drug saved me during pregnancy!

By 

from Austin, TX

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

During my pregnancy with my son, I had hyperemesis and was vomiting from week 6 to week 28 of pregnancy, on almost a daily basis.  (My morning-sickness even resurfaced during week 36, two weeks before my son was born).  I was miserable and wouldn't have been able to work at ALL during my pregnancy if my OB had not prescribed me Zofran.

I'm not normally an advocate of taking medication while pregnancy, but this was a life-saver for me.  If I took a pill before getting out of bed in the morning, within 15 minutes I felt safe to get out of bed and not vomit.  It made it possible for me to eat again (something I had not been able to do on a regular basis for almost 2 weeks before I got the med) and as long as I took another pill every 6 hours, was able to function during the day.  

My issues with it were that my OB was hesitant to prescribe it, so I only got 40 pills all together, and for my nausea, it was only effective for five or six hours.  If I didn't take a pill, the nausea would come back like clockwork, just as bad.  It was also pretty expensive, even with insurance.  But if I had to do it all over again, I'd do the same thing.

Works, but with side effects

By 

from Jackson, MS

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

My doctor gave me Zofran for nausea during pregnancy. This pill is safe to take during pregnancy, or at least my doctor said it was. I only took it sporadically because of the terrible side effects of taking it. Almost every time I took a pill, I had to take a glass full of metamucil. This only exaggerated the nausea that I experienced during my first trimeseter. The constipation that I experienced after taking the pills almost made me not take them. However, the Zofran did keep me from throwing up for a least six hours. I took quite a few trips during my first trimester (when I was sick), and needed something to help me keep my food down before, during, and after the flight. These pills definitely did that. I did not experience any drowsiness or dizziness as a result of taking these pills. The main side effect I noticed was the constipation. Others have experienced severe gas pains. Although I would recommend these pills for nausea, I would only recommend them if nothing else worked.

This medicine saved me from nausea/vomiting post-op

By 

from The City of Champions, PA

Comments about Zofran ODT Tablet:

In my previous reviews, I discussed some of the side effects I had after having two surgeries within the last two months. Unquestionably, nausea and vomiting were the worst. While I am glad it is all over with, I still wanted to review Zofran ODT, a prescription medication that is prescribed by doctors and/or surgeons to prevent nausea and vomiting that can be caused by a host of medications.

In my case, the opiate-based medications that I was prescribed for short-term pain management caused me to experience severe nausea and vomiting. That's when my doctor prescribed Zofran ODT. I wasn't aware of this medication until recently, but I will say that it really helped me get through many post-op days when I couldn't hold anything down.

Unlike most medications, Zofran ODT is placed under the tongue and is dissolved. Immediately after taking Zofran, I was no longer nauseous and could eat without feeling like I was going to vomit. 

As a result, I think that doctors and surgeons should prescribe this medication to anyone who is experiencing nausea and vomiting after surgery. It really did help me get through some rough days.
