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."

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 !!!"

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!"

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 Nausea/Vomiting "I used to take Requip for restless leg syndrome, and sometimes it made me so sick I would vomit. Other nights it would be fine. One day I decided to call my PCP for a script of zofran or phenergan to help subside the horrible nasty vomiting and nausea effects of Requip and they wrote me a script of 12 4mg Zofran swallowable tablets. It helped almost immediately (not within a minute, but 10mins or less) and then decided to stop my Requip medication because just made me sick. My RLS went away with other meds that I take and while I still take Zofran, I enjoy it for any spur of the moment "IM GONNA BE SICK" Kind of feeling, so I always carry it with me. At a hospital visit they gave me a dissolvable one that tasted like berries. Good med"

For Nausea/Vomiting "I had my gallbladder removed in September and have been on this drug (as needed) since. It is a god send. I don't get as nauseated as I was the first month of surgery but still have nausea here and there. This drug works very quickly and I feel instant relief. Sometimes I find myself needing to take 2 doses of the nausea is severe and it helps to ease it. Recommend this for anyone that struggles with nausea."

For Gastroenteritis "I have the stomach virus. It hit me around 10 this morning but I didn't start vomiting until 2. Zofran has somewhat helped. But I'm still so weak & sick. The thought of food makes me sick."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I was given this medication after a severe bout of anxiety and panic attacks. I lost 25lbs in 2 weeks due to the panic and had no appetite. Of course when you don't eat for that long, nausea can easily set it. I couldn't even move off the couch for fear of feeling extremely sick or dry heaving. I was finally given this miracle pill and the nausea quickly went from 10 (the worst) to easily a 2 or 3 within about 45 minutes. I took it for a week as I tried to get my appetite back and anxiety under control with other meds. Highly effective. I did experience some constipation from this medication, but that could also be due to the starvation mode I was in for 2 weeks. Either way, highly recommend to anyone dealing with nausea."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I've had central vertigo for years, but the nausea and vomiting have increase lately. My gastroenterologist prescribed Zofran 4mg once a day. It's a miracle! I can go out and shop without vomiting in the aisles of the grocery store. I have my life back."

For Gastroenteritis "Zofran is heaven sent. It saved me and my baby's lives. I was sick for 9 months with hyperemesis gravidarum. I was on a zofran pump as well as IV HYDRATION. I don't know if my baby would have survived without it. I'm still using it for chronic nausea. I wish I could personally thank the creators of this drug. Thank you."

For Nausea/Vomiting "I was given this drug by injection in the emergency room because I had a reaction to another drug. It stopped me from vomiting. However, since Imunetherapy I have become allergic to all nsaids, and several other drugs. One drug for a heart problem I take makes me vomit so they gave me this drug in pill form and well....I threw it up and, and tried again, and threw it up and this went on until I again went to the emergency room. An injection works but the pill works only before you become nauseated. I went to another medicine phenergan and that was a suppository which worked very well."
