My story is similar to so many. We were blessed with a wonderful daughter 8 years ago, following a pregnancy cursed by hyperemesis.6 years later we decided to try again, though it took us 2 years to concieve!! The hyperemesis returned but this time far worse than I could ever have imagined.Depite hospital care, IV therapy and all the anti-emetics in the drug cupboard, the constant nausea and vommiting gained the upper hand and to my shame I terminated my pregnancy.It is 6 months now, and I desperately want another chance. It is clear that I need to be preemptive of the symptoms though your algorithym is based from Canada and certain medications are not available in the UK.Would it be appropriate to use ondansetron preemptively as it was the one medication that provided me with any form of relief during my last pregnancy?
Consult your physician. If you used the ondansetron before and it worked, it may be appropriate to use it again at the very first moment that you have any NVP.
