Re: Anyone take Zofran?

I took it with both of my pregnancies. With my first, I had hyperemesis horribly bad. I didn't start taking it til around 17 weeks. Up until then, I had been LOSING weight and barely gained anything at all. I took it until she was born (she was 6 weeks early.) Then when I got pregnant with my second, I started throwing up just shy of 5 weeks. I tried lemon drops, B6, ginger, peppermints, everything I could think of. When I was 7 weeks, they put me in the hospital and I stayed 4 days, getting IV fluids and my strength back. I left the hospital with a prescription for Zofran and took it up until the day he was born, too (36 weeks, 4 days.) I get hyperemesis really bad when I'm pregnant and Zofran was the only thing that worked. I personally never had any side effects from it at all. It didnt make me drowsy. It was my miracle drug. I gained more than 2xs the weight with my second than I did with my first because Zofran made it possible for me to eat and hold my food down!
