Going Off Zofran
If Zofran caused QTc prolongation, would QT int. go back to normal after stopping the medication? Or is this a permanent change?
Norovirus is going around my house and I have some Zofran left over. If I feel symptoms coming on can I take the Zofran as a preventative measure?
Zofran for norovirus: Norovirus is a nasty virus that causes "stomach flu". It is highly infectious, that's why you'll see it on the news when everyone on the cruise ship gets sick. If the illness is going around your household, you may get it too unless you're extremely careful with hygiene (hand washing). Alcohol based hand rubs aren't 100% for norovirus. Zofran will help with nausea/vomiting if really needed. ...Read more

No: You are only discharged if you are stable to be discharged--if you are continuously vomiting, you will just dehydrate and return. They will likely try more zofran and then other class(-es) of anti-nausea medicines to see if can get ahead of it, then have you try small food to be sure it stays down. If yes, provide rx's, if no, admit for intractible nausea / vomiting. ...Read more
