... Zofran, but I can't afford to by the script, is there any ideas of what I can do?
go online to the pharmeceutical company who makes it. there will be a link for a patient assistance program for ppl who can't afford it. you'll fill out a form, print it out, take to your doctor. he will fill out his portion. ask for a new prescription with a larger amount and refills because the company will send the med to your doctor's office where you will go to pick it up. it's all free, but it's easier for you to request a larger amount than say just 30, and to get refills.
have you tried to apply for pregancy medical. i had my first baby at 18,the second at 19,and the third at 22. i got coverage from pregnancy medical and they will cover your perscriptions too if your doctor perscribes them. medical will also cover your baby for 6 weeks after birth and you can also get your baby on medical after hes born. if you have no money or own less then 2000 dollars your baby will qualify for no share of cost and u may also be able to recieve benifits and maybe even food stamps and cash aid to help you. google to medicine your doctor percribed you because it can effect your unborn baby. when i was preg at 19 they perscribed me terbutaline to stop contractions at 28 weeks preg. they told me there were no long term affects on the baby and they lied. i googled the med here recently because my son has speech disorder,developmental delay and got dianosed as mildly retarded bcuz hes so delayed.
the med they said has no long term effect has these risks: brain dammage,speech disorders,developmental delay,movement disorers,and autism. i found this info on lawyers.com and now my son has to have an mri of his brain to see if he sufferd brain dammage because his dna doesnt show the retardation gene and his cromosomes are normal. the only thing that could of caused it is the meds. besafe and google your med or look on www.drugs,com
Have you tried natural ways to alleviate nausea? If AM nausea, have plain non-salted crackers at your bedside and eat a few before getting out of bed. They don't taste great, but it's better than taking medication that may have unknown side effects. You can also munch crackers throughout the day. Search the web for other natural means to control nausea during pregnancy, but beware supplements and some teas - check out each one carefully before using. And ask your doctor and nurses about non-drug methods. doctors are short on time and it's easier for them to hand you a prescription than to talk to you about natural methods. And they hear much more from the drug company reps than from those promoting natural remedies. I know - I'm a recently retired nurse.
