Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "I can say I use to be a jealous husband because when our daughter gets the stomach bug I sometimes got it. There is a 50/50 chance I would get it and my wife NEVER gets it. When I found out about zofran it saved my life. I'm already a hypochondriac when it comes to the stomach bug, I hate it because as a child of the 90's there was no such pill and I always got the dirty bug. Now I take zofran when my daughter throws up or someone touches me with it just incase so I don't throw up and it always works because I stay upset stomach free. Just boggles my mind why docs never give it to patients, someone told me about it that's how I knew about it."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "This drug has saved my sanity. I was undiagnosed with a debilitating vomiting sickness. In hospital at least once a week via ambulance. Repetitive vomiting and could not stop. To the point where I would become unresponsive. After about a month into my undiagnosed sickness, at the emergency room, a nurse gave me a wafer of Zofran. It was a huuuuge relief as my uncontrollable vomiting stopped within 10 minutes. I had not heard of the drug but after finally been diagnosed, after 6 months, as having Severe Idiopathic Gastroparesis I found my new best friend. As well as having a kidney transplant and taking a bucket full of anti-rejection meds, I was soooo grateful that some smart cookie out there invented this drug. Saved my life"

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I got food poisoning and couldn't stop vomiting and having nauseousness from 3 pm to about 4 am. I was puking so much and dry heaving that I was puking up blood (YIKES!). I found some extra zofran in my bathroom cabinet from my doctor from the other month, so I decided to take one 4 mg pill. Vomiting and nausea subsided after 15 min of taking zofran. Zofran, you're a life saver!!! Would always like to carry this Medication around with me all day if I could. Adam"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Most useless medication I’ve ever been on, I am taking it for severe morning sickness all day and it has done nothing.. I’m still vomiting and having nausea constantly. I don’t understand how this is suppose to work for someone going through chemotherapy when it doesn’t even help a pregnant women the slightest."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Hospitalized for a major gut infection. I was told this was the strongest antiemetic they could give me.... unfortunately the nausea was only mildly helped. However, vomiting did stop. This medication didn't make me dizzy at all. Tastes like cough medicine. I recommend this for mild nausea, it wasn't really effective for treating more intense nausea. VERY expensive for how little relief it gave me."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I woke up this past Thursday with food poisoning. I was going to the doctor for some MRI results and told him that someone had given me leftover food from a picnic and there were a lot of mushrooms! More than one type too. I had vomiting and nausea so he gave me a shot of Zofran. I started to feel less nauseas immediately after the injection. I bought gatorade on the advise of the doctor. Then I slept quite a few hours. By Friday I was feeling 90% better. I did some research and found out I had all the symptoms of salmonella mushroom poisoning."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I'm using this for my morning sickness. This takes the edge off but doesn't completely stop me from feeling nauseous. I have a side effect that I thought you should know about as I noticed that involuntary upper eye lid spasms was in unconfirmed and I can tell you that this medication does and can cause it. I've never experienced this annoying side effect before but my eye has had severe spasms for the last 24 hours!"

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I have hyperemesis gravidarum. Never have I experienced relief with Zofran, minimal, if at all. Constipation goes hand in hand with this drug and I'd rather have N&V all day than be as constipated as I am right now. You have to weigh your pros and cons with this drug, and it's not for me."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "22 Years on mass amounts of steroids to treat my Addison's...22 years of vomiting most days. Many hospital stays. Severe gastroenteritis. First time trying this. It's amazing! It was prescribed by a lovely at doc at my last trip to the ER. Sometimes you get lucky. My eating is broken. I'm a vibrant, beautiful 42 year old woman, and I've been reduced to a meagre 100 pounds. This helps. So far. Fingers crossed."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I've been on zofran multiple times. For nausea and vomiting due to a digestive disorder I had, and when I was pregnant (24/7 sickness for most of the pregnancy) For the pregnancy it was okay. It took the edge off. Nothing can ever truly 100% help that level of constant nausea but it kept me from vomiting so I was able to keep down water and food. For the digestive problem causing sickness it was a miracle. Gives me a headache but we'll worth it. Going from feeling so sick to feeling way better. It works wonders."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I have a variety of GI issues as well as a phobia of throwing up and ever since I've been taking Zofran ODT, I've been able to function without throwing up in the middle of the night every night. My only complaint would be that after 5 years of taking it, it doesn't work as magically as it did at the start, but it still works wonders."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I was prescribed the dissolving version of this by an emergency room doctor after severe nausea due to gastroparesis 2 years ago, I remember it helping really well. Then one week ago, I went to the hospital again for the same reason, they prescribed the same thing, while it definitely helps, the nausea doesn't entirely go away"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I woke up with a horrible hangover today. I had this left over from when I had a UTI and was nauseous. I took it and within 10-15 minutes I was eating my breakfast, which gave my body the energy it needed to recover faster. Truly wonderful medication. Big sigh of relief here."

Zofran ODT (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I use this when I am driving and have nausea and was under doctor's instructions to take it twice a day until I was prescribed the scolopamine patch for nausea. Now, I just take it on the times I feel nauseated with the patch, which is not much. I like the dissolvable tablets because they are quicker than the pills to absorb and I can just carry them with me in my purse, unlike the phenergan suppositories, which have to be refrigerated or kept in a cooler when going somewhere."

For Alcohol Dependence: "In my chequered relationship with alcohol (35 yrs) I have found my way back to sobriety crippled with nausea and vomiting many times. I have tried the usual suspects over the years. Medicines which increase motility (emptying of the stomach more quickly) right up to phenothiazines (used to relieve amongst other things sea sickness and psychosis. Google anti-emetics. If you want to get sober, do it over a one week to ten day period with family support (probably more important than any drug) ask your Doctor for a serious anti sickness drug , keep hydrated !!! Drink ginger tea ! And rest. Good luck, my advice was sound for me. God Bless Dave. X"

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "Was given Zofran tablets that dissolve a few months ago for the stomach flu and it worked wonderfully. Now, they gave it to me in an IV which worked for a few hours, but the tablets they sent home didn't help me with the nausea, only stopped the dry-heaving. Also, didn't last 8-12 hours, only lasted about 4."

Zofran ODT (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "First time I took it I felt better almost instantly- it was truly crazy! The second time was the same but the third time it didn't help as much. However, it helped some and has so far kept me a little less feeling like I'm gonna puke. Better than nothing."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "It cost me $3 for six tablets with insurance. When I was vomiting every couple hours for a week and was prescribed Zofran, it reduced my vomiting to one or twice a day for the next two weeks as compared to every couple hours. It is now the third week I've been sick, and the drug works within an hour for me. There were a couple days my prescription ran out, and I started throwing up 10 times in a day again. Highly recommend"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I am 11 days post op from emergency gallbladder surgery. Been having severe nausea again just like I did before my gallbladder surgery. Having trouble with eating. Went today and had my post op visit with the surgeon. Told him I've been feeling really bad and nauseated. Lost 10 lbs in 11 days. He prescribed zofran 4mg every 8 hours. Insurance paid for 30 tablets. I also have a refill. Started today. I took my first dose about an hour ago. I actually feel good. The nausea has subsided. So far no side effects."

Zofran ODT (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "This stuff works like a dream and quickly! I take over 20 meds a month, and sometimes I just get flat out nauseated from my "cocktail from hell". I have also had it administered in an IV, and it cant be beat. The only downfall is the cost...the last I heard it is $20 per pill, and Medicaid balks at paying for it."
