If the pill is in the vomit then yes. But if not wait and see if the nausea subsides. If not try it again.

I know someone who OD'd on something because she kept taking it after vomiting. I think 1 more dose should be ok but I would not take more than that.

I did this all the time. I had hyperemesis until 41w3d!!

If it's the dissolvable tabs then you have no way to know. I would take another one.

all you HG mamas are like pg heros or something. seriously, i don't know if i could do it. not sure what the options are, but i am miserable now, i can't imagine.....

and i had no idea you could get a shot of zofran, will keep that in mind!

HG sucks. I'm another 3time survivor.:banghead: Just be careful how much you take because zofran can cause MASSIVE headaches. When I weaned off it, it was horrible. I had migraines for 2 weeks once I stopped taking it. :hugs: I don't wish hg on anyone, not even my worst enemy.

I kept puking, so my doc gave me a Rx for Fingergan (sp?) in a suppository- that way I def. wouldn't throw it up!! :giggle2:

should be fine-especially if you saw the pill but if you didn't it probaly is still fine- zofran has a dose range of 4-8mg (occasionally higher) but your pill was probably a 4 and no way did you absorbed that mich

I have to do that with Gravol (regular travel sickness drug) when I have my migraines. Can get those over the counter here.

One thing I found that helped while I was preggo were those travel sickness wristbands. Wouldn't take the nausea completely away, but definitely helped me manage it!

Yeah, I'd take it too. The max dose per day is 32mg, and I think the max individual dose is 12mg. I'm so sorry you're sick. You have a buddy here as well. :yuck: Today has been ALL laying down to keep from puking.

:hugs: I had HG with DS and DD and am hoping and praying it doesnt kick in with this pregnancy (Im only 5 weeks, so we'll see). And for me it never went away until I delivered.. so I lived on Zofran through both pregnancies.

Anyways, if its the Zofran tablets, if you throw up less than 30 min after taking it its fine to take another. The ODT zofran is absorbed into your system almost immediately, so if your on those you dont need to take another.. and if you have trouble keeping them down frequently ask for the ODT. And yep, Zofran can be given through IV or by shot as well.. but IME the ODT worked even when I was throwing up shortly after taking them.

I had hg and used Zofran too. If it is the disolvable one isn't it already dissolved in your mouth into your bloodstream or something?
