Has anyone ever used the prescription Ondansetron (generic form of zofran) For Morning Sickness??

If so, did you have any side effects?

  • yeah I did, but I was told I was an exception and they are rare. It wasnt anything horrible, but it made me really really tired and dizzy if I stood up. I already had another little one to takec care of and I stopped taking the medicine it was easier for me to throw up all day then to be dizzy and tired, like I was high on something, I hated it.

  • Zofran doesnt' really have any side effects that are common. I didn't know that they now give it to pregger women. It works really good, without making you drowsy. I've had it numerous times after surgeries

  • my dr gave me reglan for morning sickness after i ended up in the ER dehydrated from throwing up so much. but morning sickness is normal and you shouldn't really take pills unless it's severe.

  • I was on Zofran before I became pregnant, for acid reflux, and loved it. My doctor then put me on Phenergan (sp) because it's cheaper. I don't like this nearly as much... it made me feel a little more sick! So, last week, I told my doctor that we are going on a cruise and I was concerned about getting motion sickness. He put me on Zofran again. Zofran really works for me

  • yes, i have been prescribed ondansetron twice during this pregnancy. the first time, i was about 10 weeks and it made me really dizzy. it was so bad that i thought i would fall and hurt myself, so i stopped taking it. then, i was prescribed it again when i was about 22 weeks because i had become severely dehydrated and throwing up constantly. the 2nd time, i didn't have any side effects. so i think it's effects depend on the time that you take it, during your pregnancy.
