I've been dealing with deblitating nausea since week 5 and yesterday was the absolute worst day so far. I threw up at least 12x's. I'm currently on zofran at the max dosages and it wasn't doing anything. My dr prescribed me phenergran for night time to work with the zofran. Man, it knocked me out! I had so much trouble functioning this morning because I was groggy. But it's kept the nausea at bay so far. It's starting to come back a little now. This is the first time in over 3 weeks that I have drank more than a 1/4 of my water bottle, I've taken my vitamins, and ate something that actually appears to be staying down.
I hope this keeps up because yesterday my dr was debating on whether I should go into the hospital for IVs or not. I think if it would have kept up today then that's where I'd be.
We'll see how tomorrow goes.
I wonder if you took 1/2 a dose of the phenegren if you would still hold off the nausea and be less tired? It can make you really groggy! Glad something is working though!

Thanks guys I was at my wits end yesterday. I was at work and basically just sitting in the ladies bathroom crying. It was horrible. I was super sick with my last pregnancy and just feel so depressed that it's happening again. I just wanted a happy pregnancy this time.
And I am debating on taking half the phenergan tonight. Although I was very groggy at least I wasn't nauseas. What's the worst of two evils?
That's what I'm thinking too lol
Ask your OB about ginger capsules and vitamin B6, they both help nausea and have no side effects I'm drinking ginger tea and it really helps! I'm also on zofran max dose. I'm always counting down the hours till I can take it again. The ginger tea really helps me get through the wait till my next zofran.
