I was wondering if any of you other mamas have experience with taking Zofran to combat morning sickness?
I am currently taking Unisom/B6 coctail and it is helping somewhat but I am still extremely nauseus all day long (esp. at night). Contemplating talking to my OB about starting Zofran. What do you all think?
I've never taken it, but am doing much better w/the B6. I have heard very good things about it, though. I say it can't hurt to try, especially if you're still so miserable. Hang in there!

Currently on Zofran due to hyperemesis - it is a lifesaver! Make sure if you start it to keep up on fluid intake - constipation is a side effect. It really helps immensely though - I am not totally nausea-free, but food stays where it's supposed to (knock on wood), and I finally stopped losing weight!
I'm on Zofran, and it has been a life saver for me. Since about week 6 I was puking up everything and losing weight, and was couch bound all day long (luckily I only work a few evenings a week so I could do that). I went on Zofran a few weeks ago and am now able to keep down food and fluids again! The nausea isn't completely gone and neither is the vomiting but I did get some relief. Unfortunately it does cause constipation which I am still trying to figure out how to remedy. In my opinion the relief from the nausea is totally worth it.
