my OB just called me in a script for zofran. last night i was vomiting for 30 min. i think i scared my 3 y/o b/c i couldn't stop dry heaving while we were in the car (yes, i was driving - fun!). i am nauseous around the clock, can't get comfortable to sleep, and am throwing up multiple times per day.

i never had to take meds with previous pregnancies. has anyone taken zofran?

Yes I have taken zofran - Especially with my first, I had morning sickness 24/7 for 6 months...
Zofran is a miracle worker for me!
Will definitley get it again when I start m/s for this pregnancy.

I'm not sure what different forms there are, but I had zofran and it was a cream I could rub on my wrists. It was a miracle worker!!! I used it with both pregnancies but it was pretty expensive even with insurance.

I took zofran when I was pregnant with my daughter. It didn't cure my morning sickness, but it helped some. It did make me constipated though (TMI). I waited a while to ask for it last time, but this time I'm going to mention it at my first appt, and if they don't give me a prescription right away, I'm going to call as soon as the morning sickness kicks in. I was incredibly miserable and super stubborn, ended up losing 15 lbs and couldn't even keep down water for a while last time.

I wish I was throwing up... M/s would be such a mind relief...

On that note, zofran also works on children! When my daughter had the flu her dr gave her zofran tablets. She was sick yesterday. Threw up six times in n hour. Poor thing. So I went upstairs and gave her some of my zofran (my IVF doc gave it to me as rising estrogen can make you nauseous). It worked. She didn't throw up the rest of the day. ASo, just FYI. She's three and was on the same 10mg dosage as I had.

Feel better!

If you can get a prescription for Zofran 8mg ODT (Oral Dissolving Tablets), I highly recommend them. They go right under your tongue and dissolve in seconds. No water or pills to activate your gag reflex. Even though the regular Zofran pills are small, they would still make me gag as they went down my throat. I used the Zofran ODT with my last 2 pregnancies and they were a lifesaver. I took my first Zofran of this pregnancy this morning because my nausea has peaked. I finally have some relief.

I took Zofran when I was expecting my son. I've just started experiencing nausea with this pregnancy but nothing that I can't handle for now.

I would prefer not to take it if I don't have to.
