Zofran- the miracle med

I've always said it was a miracle drug! It has saved my life a few times now... LOVE it! (minus the constipation side effect)

I am worried about the constipation. I do feel like a whiole different person. Today it didn't work as well ... pills don't usually work for me either but I'm glad it is.

i find they work best for me if i take them on a fairly regular schedule. if i skip them for a day, it takes me a few days before it feels like they're working well again. i doubt my constipation was 100% from the zofran. i know i was also not getting nearly enough water and not eating the right foods. i was just in survival mode at the time. a stool softener never hurts, though!

Maybe I should try that. i have been trying to take them as needed but i just end up feeling crappy because I'm sickly again.

I've been on Zofran for ...um.. I'm 18 weeks, so.. 12 weeks! TWELVE WEEKS! That's almost an entire trimester of morning sickness.

Anyway, they worked great at first, but... you know...after 12 weeks they don't really do anything anymore..

I haven't pooped since I started Zofran. I finally went today but it sucked. I'm sad.

I hadn't even realized I hadn't popped until I started cramping...and freaked out. Is there anything you eat normally that makes you go? If I drink Apple Juice or Milk I have to go within a few minutes when I'm not pregnant. So I just drink a little bit and it makes me go - even on the Zofran.

Careful!!! When I had to go to the Dr b/c of non-pooing she said Apple juice can have a reverse effect and actually make you NOT go! She suggested other juices such as blueberry (not sure why..)

If you're a coffee person, that can help in some cases! Smile

Secret I got your FB post response but haven't had time to respond.. Just glad to see you're back. I was missing you. :cry:

Aww thanks Adriana! No worries about getting back to me - as long as I see you posting (either here or FB) I assume you're doing okay.

But believe me, if I think you aren't.. I WILL private message attack you! Lol

I am going to eat some dried apriocots tomorrow to see if that'll help things move... but honestly when I'm not preggers I normally (TMI) go only every other day or so and I don't get set off by foods unless it's making me sick sick. But I also thought if I don't start again then I will get cranberry juice and I also have fiber gummies. I go in on Friday (ULTRASOUND YAY!) so I can talk to them about it then too. I took less zofran today so maybe that's help for tomorrow...
