Getting through the day with Zofran

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2008-12-11

I am currently 7 1/2 weeks and have been sick (NV) since week 4...ugh! I am on Zofran now and it helps in the mornings but seems to quit working by early afternoon. So, my afternoons and evenings are miserable. Do you have any advice on what I can do to get through the rest of the day? Right now I just suffer through, but it is difficult with two small children to look after. Thanks!

You may need to increase the dose of Zofran or add another medication to get you through the day. You should discuss this with your doctor and call our tollfree NVP Helpline at: 1 800 436-8471 to speak to one of our specially trained counselors.
