zofran is usually used to control nausea in cancer patients or for surgery.  with pain meds, they usually give promethazine, which is what i take.  so in answer to your question, no.  i have not taken zofran to the best of my knoweldge.

Zofran  is great for controling medicine induced nausea. But I have not seen it work well with other forms as it doesn't trigger the nausea center in the brain like phenergan.  But it worked better than compizine for the chemi patients (but than again that would be medicine induced). My hospice patients liked it better though becuase it didn't cause the drowsiness.  

That is what I know.  I use phenergan and it works really well but everyone is different

Oh and yes. It can cause belly aches and in some nausea. Go figure.  If she isn't taking it to conteract another medication. I would ask to switch to phenergan (promathiazine). Other than sleepiness it is a gentler med

I took it post surgery and loved it, never gave me a belly ache!  But I also had Zantac as well to help with the pain meds as I have acid reflux!  Is there pain meds as well?  Wondering if something else is the culprit?
