I have terrible morning sickness and I was given a prescription for ondansetron 4mg which is the generic version of zofran. I'm scared to take it because of the possible side effects and the warnings I've seen on TV. I don't want to take any risks when it comes to my baby. Any thoughts on this?

I took it and still do and everything's fine, funny all of a sudden theirs this lawsuit! All medications have risk honestly if u do your research. Zofrans the only reason I'm not sick as heck and I'm thankful for it. I went to my lowest weight I've ever been in my first trimester I'm now in my third and I'm back on track. So it benefited be greatly.

Zofran saved my life! There is risk with anything you eat drink or take when you're pregnant but I agree the benefits outweigh the risks. Morning sickness lasted all day for me and Zofran was the only thing that helped me last through the days.

My doctor and I agreed that the benefits outweigh the risks. Zofran for pregnant women has been available for almost 20 years if it was as bad as they say we wouldn't have just been hearing about ambulance chasing lawsuits.
I had severe morning sickness with my daughter to the point I couldn't keeps down spoons of water eve for my entire pregnancy I was on it so me and baby didn't die.  This time around u was o. It until I was 22 weeks along. My children are perfect.
