Zofran, the wonder drug!!

So my Dr finally prescribed me Zofran since nothing has been helping my extreme all day nausea and vomiting. This stuff works!! For the first time since I was 5 weeks, I was able to eat a full meal!! I had country fried steak, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob and then split a chocolate molten lava cake with ice cream with my husband. He was so happy that I was eating that he let me eat most of it! And here I am at nearly 2 in the morning eating a bag of popcorn! Hopefully this means that I will gain back those 10 pounds that I've lost in the past month and a half! Yay Zofran!!

Glad you're getting some relief!! On the really bad days, that's been the only thing that's allowed me to function. Fortunately, those days are getting farrer and fewer in between!

Hooray for the Zofran! Beware, it can cause constipation! I take a stool softener when I take Zofran!

Yeah, unfortunately, I have heard that it causes constipation, but I think I would rather choose that over what I was going through! Hopefully I wont have to take them too much longer, I'm almost out of the first trimester!

I too have been on Zofran. It helped me a little, but definately did not eliminate the nausea. I take colace 1 or 2 times a day. Eat lots of fruits and veggies. And let's say a prayer and do a little dance so this goes away in the second trimester Blum 3
