Yes: Yes you can but not to be taken more than a couple of times per day. The better option is finding out the root cause for your nausea and correcting that so that you no longer need the zofran (ondansetron).

Can't be Answered: Though individuals undergoing chemotherapy can take 24 mg before treatments, most people should not exceed 4 mg every 8 hours. Those with liver compromise metabolize drugs at a far slower rate and, therefore, need to be far more cautious about dosing frequency. Guidelines should come directly from your personal physician.

Ok together: Prozac and zofran (ondansetron) are okay to be taken together, as there are no significant drug interactions, and could be taken at the same time.

WELL TOLERATED: ZOFRAN (ondansetron) is very well tolerated for nausea. Most common side effect is sedation try to rest. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery.
