For Nausea/Vomiting "Zofran help greatly went from vomiting constantly to nothing - it's amazing. The problem is that if you just took it you will still vomit you need to wait and the nausea takes 10 minutes to stop"

For Nausea/Vomiting "Prescribed for stomach flu. Within 2 minutes of taking it, I vomited. Waste of money."

For Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced "I'm one of those people that would rather be in pain than nauseous, so when I started chemotherapy I knew I was in for a ride. I was given a cocktail of meds right before chemo and then Decadron and Zofran for a couple of days after for allergic reaction and nausea. For the times after that "as needed" I have Zofran & Compazine for nausea and Ativan for "anticipatory nausea". I guess the Ativan would help some commenters in this thread who actually get sick from thinking about getting sick. It made me too drowsy so I was left with the Compazine and Zofran. I found the Zofran to be by far the most effective; I take one 4mg tablet as soon as I start feeling queasy and within 10-15 minutes I am fine - I'm even able to eat. Thankfully my insurance covers it as it is a little more expensive than some meds for nausea but to me it's worth not vomiting. I recommend this medication highly."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I was prescribed this for nausea and vomiting several different times by Dr. I have anxiety that leads to vomiting and nausea. zofran did not stop the nausea or vomiting and gave me a horrible headache that nothing would stop. Phenergan is the better of the 2 for me."

For Gastroenteritis "God bless the manufacturers of Zofran! I am phobic about vomiting - panic attacks just thinking about it. That little miracle dissolves on my tongue and takes away the nausea and fear. It has saved me trips to the ER for gastric issues. I never want to be without it."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I was given 4mg of Zofran twice through an IV to combat a stomach bug. Once at home I took a pill form of Zofran because the nausea had not yet subsided. The next day my tongue started to feel swollen and my jaw started to have spasms. I was in so much pain. I received a steroid shot and a muscle relaxer shot both in my buttocks. I still experienced tremors and I was unable to talk. The doctors said the rise in my serotonin levels caused the reaction to the Zofran. I will never take Zofran as long as I live unless I absolutely have to."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I have an extreme fear of nausea and vomiting. It’s so bad I get nauseated when someone coughs. I was given zofran and it was perfect for when my anxiety was making the fear harder to deal with. Then I got salmonella poisoning and it didn’t work whatsoever. I took three 4mg 20 minutes apart hoping it’d help and it didn’t. A few days after taking antibiotics for salmonella poisoning, I’m still a little nauseated (zofran doesn’t work) and can’t do much. Thinking about going and getting a higher dose."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I was given this for mild nausea caused by taking antibiotics. One 4mg pill didn't help but 2 of them helped greatly! It calmed my stomach enough that I could eat again. My doctor is very stingy with them though, not sure why. Only gave me 12 pills. Highly recommend!"

For Gastroenteritis "I was diagnosed with GERD at 14 and whenever I feel even slightly nauseous, I suck on a Zofran and the nausea goes away within about 2 minutes. It’s very useful but every now and then if I feel extremely nauseous it doesn’t help much."

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."

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"

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 "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."

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 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."

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."

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."

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 "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."

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 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."

"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."
