Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Zofran

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Zofran [posted 1/7/99]
Question:A very good friend of mine in South America is having very hard time after chemotherapy. Her symptoms vary from headaches, to nausea and vomiting. Furthermore, this medicine is very expensive and she cannot afford to buy it. I was wondering if I could buy the medicine here in the U.S. with or without her prescription and ship it to her. I appreciate any help you can give us concerning this situation.

Answer:Most physicians will allow you to do this under the circumstances, I usually do anyway. However, you will need a prescription and not put it on your prescription plan (fraud). Check with your doctor.

Question:A friend of mine wanted to know more about the Med. ZOFRAN and pregnancy.

Answer: Currently, there is no evidence that Zofran affects either fertility or mutagenesis. Zofran is a selective 5HT3 blocking agent usually used for nausea control-especially after chemotherapy. Some have used this for other causes of nausea with fair results.
