The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I tried the Unisom + B6 combo for NVP which didn't work. The next thing my doctor prescribed is Zofran. I have read this is usually the last thing tried if nothing else works. Are there other safer therapies I could ask the doctor about that I could try before Zofran? I have taken Zofran once and it did reduce the nausea significantly. But I am worried about what effects this will have on the baby even after he/she is born. When I take nothing I can not eat or drink hardly anything.
Zofran has been studied in pregnancy and has not been found to increase the risk for birth defects above the baseline of 1-3% or cause any other adverse effects on the baby. Consult your doctor. If it has worked for you in the past, you may want to try it again.
