I find promethazine does a wonderful job in controlling nausea, but also puts me to sleep for about 9-10 hours. My doctor says all anti-nausea medication is likely to have this effect, but Zofran is usually a little better. Is this what you have found?
Zofran (ondansetron hydrochloride) is a prescription medicine that has been licensed to prevent nausea and vomiting due to several causes.
Uses of Zofran include preventing the following: * Nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy; * Nausea and vomiting due to radiation therapy for cancer; * Postoperative nausea and vomiting that can occur after surgery.
The medication is not intended to treat nausea or vomiting that is already occurring.
Zofran is mainly used with nausea associated with chemotherapy, due to radiation therapy for cancer. One would not use Zofran as an anti-nausea tic, please double check it with your doctor.
Promethazine hydrochloride (Phenergan) is a prescription medication approved for a variety of widely different uses. It is probably used most often as a nausea medication, although it is frequently used for other purposes as well.
Promethazine would cause drowsiness as one of its side effects, however drowsiness has not been reported with Zofran, your doctor would be the best person to cross check the info, hope it helps? Be well & safe!
