Sort by:

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I sometimes suffer from anxiety that makes me physically ill. I have been nauseous and puking for 7 days and I finally went to see a doc. They gave me the dissolving tablets. Eww! Gross. The taste stays in my mouth for hours and it doesn't help. It just gets worse."

Zofran ODT (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Today I went to the doctors for some common flu symptoms. They prescribed me Zofran for my nausea and upset stomach. About 10-15 minutes after taking it there was a tremendous relief of everything. It works rapidly and does wonders. I have not experienced any side effects like headaches or nothing yet so everything's good so far."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Was given this drug while pregnant for morning sickness. Didn't help at all, gave me a headache and actually made me throw up a few times. My son was also born with a genetic mutation - Epidermal Nevus syndrome which I'm sure is from the Zofran as it is not approved for use during pregnancy. If I could go back in time I would NOT have used this during pregnancy. I was also given this drug several times for gastroenteritis with the same result - headache and increased vomiting. Did not work for me."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I caught a stomach bug around the middle of November and was extremely nauseous. I saw my gastroenterologist who prescribed Ondansetron which helped. I have post infectious IBS thanks to the nasty stomach bug I picked up and experience nausea among other things and this medicine has helped. I hate feeling nauseous."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "I have to go into the hospital every two months because I start throwing up and go into a coma state if I do not get IV in me .They gave me Zofran the last time and I was up and good as new in 5 minutes. I will keep this on hand at home for future episodes !"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I've used zofran through 1 pregnancy and now tried it with this current twin pregnancy. I have hyperemesis gravidarum (basically extreme morning sickness, loss weight due to inability to eat/keep things down) and unfortunately it hasn't worked at all for either of my pregnancies. Glad it works so well for so many. Sad im not one of the many."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I had bad constipation and my urgent care doctor prescribed it To me so I wouldn't throw up due to me being terrified of it. After about 30-60 minutes I feel a lot better and I can actually eat again. It doesn't help out so much with the constipation but it keeps my anxiety from building up towards the vomitting."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "This medication worked wonders when I had my hip scope back in May. I only took pain pills to sleep, but when I went to shower and sat down after taking my pills I was so nauseous and took zofran and it worked within 5 minutes! I actually used it for a hangover once and still worked amazingly! Haha "

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "I take this occasionally for nausea due to c-diff. It helps a lot just to take a pinch of the 4mg dissolvable pill."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced: "Sadly, oral Zofran (or at least the generic of it) was not enough to combat my nausea while on GDP. However intravenous zofran along with hydration did help."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting, Postoperative: "I've been given Zofran pre op and post op for all ten surgeries, including my hysterectomy since I always have nausea and vomiting before/after surgery. I've even got Zofran during ER visits for migraines, gallstones, and ovarian cyst ruptures. This is my go to antimetic and I even have the ODT in my nightstand in case I ever get too nauseous. Amazing drug!"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Took this medication for the first time for nausea caused by a severe ear infection. Thirty minutes after the first dose my eyes were itchy quickly followed by my scalp and the rest of my body. I looked in the mirror I was very bright red and swelling quickly. Took the maximum recommended dose of benadryl but to no avail. One hour later in the urgent care for steriods and more benadryl until they could get it under control. Very scary medicine."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I use ondansetron orally disintegrating tablets that i receive via prescription (8mg). I only use these on rare occasions when i eat badly, eat too much, or am very anxious, thereby making myself sick. It usually kicks in a few hours after i take it. (They are disintegrating but I usually swallow them with water because the taste is unappealing to me, but so far that has not affected its efficiency). Every time as far back as i can recall (and I have been taking this for several years) this medicine has been able to help with my nausea and vomiting. The only times i remember getting sick despite the medicine was when i got upset and cried violently, causing me to throw up. Other than that i don't recall ever throwing up after taking it!"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I have endometriosis on my bowel and severe IBS. A lifelong emetophobic, the crippling nausea/vomiting/diarrhea that accompany my endometriosis/IBS cause me great anxiety and keep me from living freely. I was first prescribed zofran after surgery on my bowel so I could take pain meds without vomiting. Then I was prescribed oral zofran/ondansentron to manage ongoing nausea. It helps TREMENDOUSLY. If very sick, I may take 8mg to stop the nausea entirely but 4mg usually does the job within 30 min. I also have a prescription for the 4mg Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODT) version that melt under your tongue. They work FAST. Within 10-15 min. This med is a lifesaver for me. Side effects of bad constipation & headaches are manageable for me."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "They gave me Zolfren in the ER when I was very nauseous and it wouldn't cease. It took two, but then I felt human again. Since then since I have IBS and get nausea occasionally still, I use it and it stops it cold. If I am highly nauseous it takes longer to work, and I have to take two Zolfren. I was told they give this to babies and chemo patients and that aren't any side effects. I salute this medication; for me it is a life saver."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Zofran is great for nausea, but watch out for the constipation. I was prescribed 15 8mg tablets last week and have used one tablet a day since then (about 5 days now) and after waiting, walking, drinking copious amounts of water, I am going to need to try a suppository, or laxative, and have my dosage of zofran decreased to 4 mg. Great medication, it DOES give me nausea relief, just something to be prepared for, I know I wasn't."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "Like one of the reviews above. I Went into ER with gastroenteritis symptoms. Could not keep down anything including water due to nausea and heavy vomitting of anything. Was given injection of zofran and a prescription for the generic ondansetron and felt less nauseous. Allows me to eat better and to sleep."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Ever since the 5th week of my pregnancy, my morning sickness was terrible I lost weight and couldn't keep a thing down. I could hardly get out of bed. My doctor prescribed Zofran and it's been a huge help. Doesn't always take away the nausea feeling But no more vomiting! Definitely recommend it"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Nausea/ vomiting. Took tablet 45 minutes before lunch time and I still needed to slow down to avoid build nausea toward Cheerios and a banana. Lunch is 50 minutes long and it still did not curb nausea with food I considered safe. Thinking there might still be some coverage 6 hours later I tried eating a carrot but my body quickly rejected it."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Sometimes have really terrible heartburn, due to my birth control pills, and sometimes causes bad nausea. Wanted an alternative to promethazine. Work great for taming the nausea, but the side effects were pretty annoying. Terrible backache and constapation. Oh man. Won't be taking these unless I'm dying or something."

Zofran ODT (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Had kidney stone and given a Zofran prescription to take home for nausea - it only made it worse. Every time I took it I found myself more nauseous after only 1/2 hour. I chose to stop and had my doctor switch me to a different drug. I think some people's systems are more sensitive to it than others, especially if they are taking pain medications with the Zoran."
