Zofran Link

Thanks to my friend Kathy, who shared this link with me regarding Zofran. Sorry it's taken me so long to share!

Just an FYI, I am not at all trying to discourage Zofran use - I'm on the stuff myself at the moment. But I post anything and everything HG-related to this blog, so that readers will have as much information as they possibly can regarding HG and its treatments.

Have a great day, all!


  1. When I was pg, I read that the risk to mums was greatest in the first trimester. I tried to wait until after then to take it. Unfortunately, that's also when NVP is the worst, and it's hardest to not take it! I wonder if that's why my NVP/HG lasted so much longer than yours did--I got mine manageable so much later in the game.

  2. Yes, that's a really common issue - a lot of doctors, especially, want to wait to treat HG till it's out of the first trimester - by which time it's completely out of control. Now that I've done HG both ways - uncontrolled and controlled by meds, I can say without any reservation that the recovery is MUCH easier and faster when the HG is controlled. The two times it's been controlled, it's been under control and livable by 20 weeks. When it was uncontrolled, it was absolutely miserable (and incapacitating) for much longer, with stronger nausea till first week postpartum, plus two years of postpartum residual nausea. However, you also had some classic HG signs that I didn't have, such as the late-second-trimester relapse - I don't know if controlling it early in the game helps with that (though I'd suppose so, at least to some degree). It's a nasty thing all around, basically! :)
