Even the unbranded zofran cost me $40 for 9 pills and then it didn't even work! However, the doc then prescribed me phenegran and it worked really well for me. It did make me REALLY sleepy though...sometimes unexpectedly. So I wouldn't drive while on it.
Reglan for me, too. It did make me sleepy so it was rough with a 2 year old on the loose, but it worked. They can also prescribe phenergan (which didn't work as well and is a category C) in both pill and compound - you can rub it on your wrists instead of risking it coming back up - form. I was sick for 32 weeks with E. Blech.
Definitely ask for the generic....I think it's Ondansetron or something like that. I only paid 10 dollars a RX with my insurance. Also, if this doesn't work, your doctor can get in contact with your insurance company to let them know this is medically necessary due to hyperemesis. I had to do that with Alex.
My docs wouldn't give anything to me because I wasn't actually throwing up. But nausea and food aversion so bad that I lost 15lbs. I've heard they'll prescribe Unisom to help with nausea, and you can get that over the counter...but make sure you clear it through your OB first.
I have been takiing Zofran for my morning or all day sickness. I had to call my dr to get it refilled about a week ago, and my insurance company is giving us a little trouble. Ever since I stopped taking it I have been really sick!! Does anyone know of any other medicine I could get that really works and I shouldn't have any problems getting??
