My friend just gave me some zofran that the hospital had given her son not long ago. It was 4mg wafer and it dissolved on my tongue. I took it a few hours ago but it has done nothing. How long does it take for it to work??? And you do dissolve it on your tongue??
Yes you dissolve it on your tongue. The 4mg wafer worked for me but only for about six hours. It pretty much worked within half an hour after I took it.
Hope it helps eventually for you x
An adult dose of ondansetron is more like 6-8mg so that might be your problem. Hope your feeling better soon
When I was really sick I was taking 8mg ondansetron every 6 hours.

I have just started taking Zofran but a few things I have read have said that Dr's don't usually prescribe it in the first trimester. I am nearly six weeks pregnant and have been vomiting and nauseaus non stop for a week, I went to my Dr crying. My GP was relucant to prescribe it but my OB gave me the prescription.
My question is - has anyone used it in the first trimester? and is it safe in the first trimester?
I've used Zofran and Maxalon since week 5 and I'm now 32 weeks. My OB keeps prescribing it as he says it's safe. Honestly I don't know how I'd even make it to the couch some days with one of the two. I've tried to used to Zofran less, and I halve it, cause I know it's stronger. You've got to do what works for you. Good luck
