Is Zofran "worth" the constipation?

Postby niki » Mar 17, 2005 5:15 am


I have a question for all Zofran "lovers". I'm about to go and fight the UK health system for Zofran before ttc - and before I go into battle - I need to know if it provides enough relief to be worth the constipation horror.

I'm sure it's a very personal issue - and some people might have experienced less constipation side-effects than others. But I would be really interested to hear your opinions.

Thanks so much

For me YES Zofran is WELL worth the constipation. I can function, I am a mom again to my 2 year old. It's worth it to me to have a little extra bathroom time every so often.

Granted the constipation is horrible, but it is defintiely worth it for me too. Like Deborah, I can somewhat function, whereas without it I would be a non-functioning mess. But I also stick to the absolute smallest doses I can get away with, and that seems to help. Good luck with the battle!

YES definitely!!! As pp have said - without it my life was hell. With it, and some extra help from some stuff to keep me regular, it is bearable, and I can live (eat, drink and sleep reasonably normally). All the best with the fight, and if you do end up on Zofran, I'd say have a plan ready to fight the constipation too.
