My mother has gallbladder cancer and suffers from nausea constantly. She has been on 8mg dose of Zofran for about a month. Today this does not seem to be helping with nausea. Is it safe to double the dose? It is New Years day and no Dr. or Pharmacy to answer questions.
Can more than 8mg of zofran be taken as a single dose?

I know its terrible to watch this and not be able to do anything. Is she getting chemo? She can have 8 mg twice a day as far as the recommendations go. So now we improvise. Scheweppes ginger ale or ginger tea will help nausea. Ginger root helps
Best bet is not to double it, could cause complications due to the ingredients and how they interact with body chemistry. I would think an hour sooner than the instruction would be alright, but would not double, especially if approval to do this came from a stranger online.
