Zofran is a prescribed medication that helps prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. You can also take it if you suffer from migraines or severe nausea. Your doctor may prescribe you Zofran to treat postoperative nausea or nausea onset by migraines or migraine medication. It comes in the following forms:
• Disintegrating tablet.
- How Does Zofran Work?
The dosage for Zofran varies by patient. Your age, medical condition, and type of cancer treatment are three main factors in determining how much Zofran you should take. The key is taking Zofran prior to each cancer treatment so you can avoid an upset stomach. Your doctor may also recommend that you take it after each treatment.
- How Do I Get Zofran?
You must have a prescription from a licensed healthcare professional to get Zofran. Many Medicare and insurance plans do not cover this moderately priced drug, although manufacturer and pharmacy coupons can help cover the cost. Along with getting Zofran from pharmacies, you can also get the generic version from us. At Nurx™, we make it easy for you to get a prescription for migraine relief and have your Ondansetron, our generic version of Zofran, sent right to your door. Our medical professionals can assess your conditions and offer you guidance when looking for nausea relief from migraines.

- What Precautions Should I Take When Taking Zofran?
Before taking Zofran, it's important to have an honest conversation with your doctor. Although most people see the benefits of Zofran, and it has few serious side effects, you should still take a few precautions when using this drug. If you have a known allergy to Ondansetron, you should avoid Zofran. Likewise, let your doctor know if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are nursing. Some doctors prescribe Ondansetron to pregnant women experiencing morning sickness; however, it's difficult to find studies that confirm its safety during a pregnancy. Informing your doctor about your medical history can help them prescribe the right dosage for you.
- How Should I Store Zofran?
Store your Zofran prescription in a dry place at room temperature. Make sure to keep it out of direct light. Keep the medication in its package until you are ready to take a dose.
- What Are the Side Effects of Zofran?
When taking Zofran, it's important to make sure your benefits are outweighing any side effects you may experience. This is a popular nausea medication since most people who take it don't experience any serious side effects. Let your doctor know if you are experiencing any of these more common symptoms:
Though it's rare, you could also experience some more serious side effects from taking Zofran. Contact your doctor right away if you're having any of these more moderate symptoms:
Muscle spasms or stiffness.
Other more serious symptoms require medical attention right away. Zofran has the potential to cause serotonin syndrome, which is a life-threatening condition. Symptoms of this condition include a fast heartbeat, severe dizziness, severe nausea, severe vomiting, severe diarrhea, twitching muscles, fever, restlessness, loss of coordination, and hallucinations. If you're allergic to Zofran, you may have trouble breathing, rashes, itching, swelling, and severe dizziness. Seek medical help right away if you have the following symptoms:
- Can I Take Other Medications While on Zofran?
In order to feel the effects of Zofran, take this drug as prescribed by your doctor. They may have you take it before and after cancer treatment, but the directions may differ when treating another condition. Never take Zofran with apomorphine, as this can lead to a dangerous reaction. Tramadol is another drug that could cause a reaction when taken with Zofran. Using street drugs that increase your serotonin levels can heighten your risk of serotonin syndrome. Only take medications that your doctor approves. There are additional medications and drugs that increase your risk of complications with Zofran.
