Anyone else on Zofran?

Is anyone else on Zofran? My doctor prescribed it because she is afraid that I am going to become too dehydrated due to the morning sickness. I am so afraid that Zofran will harm my baby. Is anyone else taking this medication for morning sickness? It is for chemo patients and there are not really many studies that support that it is safe during pregnancy. Do you think it is safe?

lurking. I am almost 27 wks, and have been on zofran since i was 7-8 wks. it is a life saver. I haven't seen anything to indicate that it is harmful to the baby. But it has helped me so much, and i am down to only having to take it in mornings. GL, HTH.

Zofran is actually one of the safest drugs that they can give you for morning sickness, from what every doc has told me (Including a neurologist lol). I wouldn't worry

I was on Zofran for the first trimester with DS. It was the only thing that would help keep food down. My DS is perfectly normal.

I have been taking Zofran as needed this pregnancy & I took it in my 3rd trimester with my last pregnancy. It's a category B drug, so it's considered safe. I think that complications from dehydration & lack of nutrition due to morning sickness are more likely to cause problems than this.

I have been taking the prescription and it is helping me with being able to keep more food and water down. Thanks everyone for your responses. It is comforting to hear that I am not the only one that has been prescribed this drug for MS. Hopefully it will continue to work but today I am feeling rather gross inside and out. I guess that is what is to be expected with pregnancy though. I did not get sick like this with my first pregnancy and we lost our baby. Everyone keeps trying to tell me that it is a good sign that I am sicker. Is this true? I think there is probably the same odds of miscarriage no matter how sick a woman is. I just miss smelling a cooked meal and WANTING to eat it. I look forward to the days when that will happen for me again.

It's a life saver! I love it!! I am only getting sick maybe two times instead of 5 plus times a day. I don't know what I would do without it! I am 11 weeks and have been taking it since about 4ish weeks.

Being sick is supposed to be a good sign! Because of all the hormones & everything, it's an indication that things are going well.

Having morning sickness is bittersweet. I am happy to be feeling symptoms now but it is making me miserable. Up until this week I have just been a nervous wreck hoping for a sign that everything is going OK. Now, it is making it impossible for me to do my job. I work in an office and I just feel like so much of my day revolves around being sick. I hate not putting 100% of myself into my job. Now everyday I am just praying for the time to roll around that I can leave instead of trying to squeeze every task into the day that I can. I am finding now that it is also getting harder and harder for me to get out of bed in the mornings too. I just don't feel like I am getting enough sleep but I am getting 8 hours every night! Oh, I am just so ready for the 2nd trimester already. We are going on vacation in 2 weeks and I do not look forward to being sick on an air plane... ugh. Just the thought of it makes my stomach turn!

I took zofran from week 16 through to delivery with my daughter. She is healthy, happy, and extremely intelligent. No concerns and I'm quite sure that zofran saved both of our lives. I threw up 20 times a day until I was hospitalized and given this prescription.
