Within minutes of the first sign of feeling cold I was ghasping for breath and my husband was calling the nurses for help. I somehow could breathe in but couldn ... Show Full Comment

    I was given Zofran IV to attempt to stop uncontrollable nausea and vomiting related to inner ear issue and pressure changes of flying. It had no effect; I was still vomiting off the gurney until they changed to phenergan, which was effective (although the combination of the two drugs together had some unpleasant perceptual side effects until the Zofran wore off). Recently, my mother had colon su ... Show Full Comment

    I take this medication to help with chronic nausea due to malabsorption syndrome, which resulted from nerve damage to my GI tract. It works so well and is the least sedating of anti-nausea meds I've ever had.

    I was given Zofran IV in the ER of my local hospital (which I consider state-of-the-art and I am also an RN (that said for informatory purposes only)). This drug had absolutely no effect on my nausea and vomiting. The RN who gave it to me assured me that it was used alot and that symptoms usually subsided within ten minutes. I found this not to be the case at all.
