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."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I was given Ondansetron because I suffer from Hyperemesis gravidarum..(severe sickness in pregnancy) since 6 weeks pregnant I take this drug every morning after my morning sickness so the rest of the day am not vomiting out everything I eat. It does work but it makes me feel like a zombie too, feel unwell all the time!"

Zofran (ondansetron) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I was given Zofran after having my gallbladder removed. The nausea wasn't from the procedure, but came on when I was finally able to eat and the broth soup was placed in front of me. For at least a month prior I'd been getting nauseous just from seeing food no matter how hungry I was (and after fasting for surgery I was absolutely starving!) I was given Zofran in my IV and it did absolutely nothing. My surgeon then gave me a prescription for the pill form, but again, it did nothing to help my nausea."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Let's just say I will never take this again. My mouth and face got locked in one position and would not move. Had to go to the emergency room and take 3 different shots to get relief."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Was prescribed from the doc at the walk-in Ondanstron for severe vomiting due to food poisoning when I was out the day before, it stopped that but long story short I had to be in the hospital for 3 days to monitor & do tests about my heart as they thought I suffered a silent heart attack after only 3 pills, they won't admit to that drug causing some of what I got though & only that I ingested an acute viral infection. Not fun."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Came down with some sort of virus, thankfully not the flu but could already tell that nausea was going to be a problem. I asked my doc to prescribe this med to me as I had used a couple times before when I had severe stomach upset, thankfully I have insurance and only paid 15$ for 20 which was well worth it. To be honest it is helping my anxiety ( GAD/ panic disorder) as well. The script stated to take 1/2 to one 8 mg tablet 3x a day as needed. I have taken 2 in the last 9 hours and will most likely take half before bed simply to keep as a preventative measure so I don't wake up with nauseated at 2 in the morning. Honestly a miracle drug, blows phenergan out of the water. Recommend to anyone who has the flu, food poisoning or a virus."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Absolutely a life saving drug. I am a student in university and have had ongoing undiagnosable stomach problems for four years. I still miss a lot of school but with this drug, I can put weight on finally. Every now and again it flares up really bad and I will take 8 mg at a time. Otherwise, I take 4 mg about twice a day, once when I wake up and once after my midday meal. I rarely get the headaches because I take the tablets and not the ODTs. There's an artificial sugar in the ODT that supposedly causes the headaches. If a sudden bout of nausea occurs, it will go into effect in 30-45 mins for me."

Zofran (ondansetron) for : "My birth defect had shut down my bladder to the extent of not being able to urinate. Long story short,I had an infection so bad my bladder was 3x the normal size. So seeing how I couldn't go,it my body decided that it will send everything back out the way it came. If my wife didn't make me goto the hospital,my bladder would have exploded,they gave me a shot of this medication and it stop the vomiting in minutes. Well I am better and have a prescription for this,and have to self Cath because of the damage to my bladder. If I can't go backwards in time,I would have listen to my wife instead of being a procrastinator."

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "This is a miracle drug!!!!! So many times zofran came in for the save. Saved my spouse, I and our 7 and 5 year old a trip to ER when the norovirus hit us. Took it after terrible dry heaves and within 20 minutes I was able to sleep. This medicine also helped after my csection when I was nauseous. When my son had hand foot and mouth and was uncontrollably vomiting the dr gave him this medicine too, within an hour he was eating fine! This was also great for my IBS symptoms when they hit hard. 10/10 !!!"

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "I woke up at 5am with a terrible stomach virus....I swear I thought I was dying. It was coming out both ends and I was in terrible pain from the cramping. I had to lay in the floor by the toilet because I didn't have time to make it from the bed when the cramping hit me...I happened to remember that I had ondansetron(zofran) in the medicine cabinet and my wife gave me one 8mg tablet sublingual. I was better in fifteen minutes. Miracle drug!"

Zofran (ondansetron) for Gastroenteritis: "I sufffer from ulcers & get acid indigestion all the time. Of course with that I experience nausea daily..... when it gets too intense I take a 4 mg zofran and within 20-30 minutes it subsides. I thank God this medicine was created!! In the beginning I would get constipated for about 24 hours after taking a pill but don't have that anymore. I am thankful for this medicine bc I HATE nausea/vomiting."

For Gastroenteritis: "Originally I was prescribed this med for the nausea accompanying irritable bowel syndrome, because my nausea was debilitating. Zofran definitely took the edge off. Now I have gastritis which causes nausea and pain. Unlike other patients, I do not get great relief. Sometimes it takes the edge off. Then I am able to eat and drink and be functional. But right now, the pain and nausea of the gastritis has trumped the med, I feel pooly."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Came down with a very high fever and the flu. I had chills off and on for two days, which culminated with some good ole' vomit. Doc at urgent care prescribed me this horrific, useless drug for the nausea. I have NEVER had a poor reaction to any drug, until now. Even with this drug, I felt extremely nauseous and had horrific headaches. I forced myself to throw up to relieve the dibilitating feeling and stopped taking this drug and voila. I hate this drug. Never again. The headaches it induced brought me to the brink of tears."
