Phenergan vs. Zofran

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-04-13

My daughter was prescribed phenergan for vomiting, she is 6.5 weeks pregnant. She was also prescribed zofran, which of these drugs are safer for her and the baby.

It is not just a matter of which drug is safer, the important question is which one works best for her. To get advice regarding what drugs to take in pregnancy for the treatment of NVP, your daughter should call our toll free line at 1 800 436 8477 and speak to one of our specially trained counselors
