what's the max dose of zofran you can be on?

Postby JulieinMN » Sep 21, 2004 7:08 pm

I forget how much I can take.

I am about 5 weeks pregnant (from conception not doctor's chart) and am already taking 24 mg a day. I've been doing 8mg 3x a day. I started off on a real lose dose,knowing I would be adding mg as time went on.

Well, here we are, nasuea is definately there, I can handle that, but the urge to vomit is creeping up on me.

I think I remember somewhere it being said that you can max at 32mg?

Thanks in advance

32 mgs a day on the oral tabs, but the pump can be set for up to 34 mgs a day.

You may need more than the Zofran...have you tried B6/Unisom, or meclizine or benadryl, or reglan or phenergan..you get the picture.

Hope the barfies stay far away!

Uh, OH!

I'm in trouble.

I am on unisom B6 Zofran combo right now.

That seemed to keep me off IVs and out of the hospital on baby #4. I just forgot how much Zofran I maxed at.

I have done Phergan in the past, no luck. Reglan, I've heard of awful side effects.

I'll keep up on this board and hopefully, I'll be able to maintain on this.

Thanks very much,
Julie :o)

Thanks!

That's good to know.

I have maxed out my dose over the last 6 weeks, and I have throwin up 2 times a day on the 32mg. BUT, I am starting to feel like I am rounding a corniner (hopefully), down to one upchuck or non a day, and able to keep more down. Gosh, I took off 15 lbs in the last 6 weeks, I've done this before, but it never ceases to amaze me how quickly weight comes off.

Thanks again!
