I called the doctor today and got prescribed Zofran. I am nervous to take it this early in pregnancy but I am still feeling so sick. Thinking of food makes me vomit, water makes me vomit. Anyone else taken zofran during pregnancy before? Did it help? I just want to look at food and enjoy it again!!
I took it with my last child, I was on it the whole time I was pregnant. I had to I couldn't keep a thing down. It's safe to take my ob gave it to me. Also after a few hours it will make you hungry at least it did me I was eating a whole lot more than I was with out it.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I had hyperemesis with my last pregnancy and took Zofran for a couple of weeks. It took the edge off enough that I could eat and regulate my blood sugar. Low blood sugar can actually make nausea and vomiting worse. Zofran definitely helped me make it through the worst of it. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Lurking from EDD Jan. 2014--its perfectly safe to take up to 8mg every 6-8hrs. My morning sickness has been bad enough that 4mg wasn't touching me. But trust me. ... the drs. Wouldn't prescribe you something that wasn't safe for you AND baby. hope this helps and that you get to feeling better soon.
Also, keep in mind, the reason you get sick in the morning is because you're blood sugars are dropping too low while your sleeping. .. and even after taking zofran, it will continue to drop off you don't get something on your tummy. Stick with bland foods. .. bananas and the potassium they provide did wonders for me!
Haven't needed zofran during pregnancy before (I get MS but have been mostly able to regulate it without meds), but I have had it while sick and it works WONDERS. I may use it this time instead of suffering
