Taking Zofran (ondansetron) odt for nausea. Doc said I could double 4mg tablets. I took 2 tablets 4 hours ago is it okay take another dose?

Maybe: In general, zofran (ondansetron) is made for short-term usage, and if it has not gotten your symptoms under control yet, adding more is unlikely to help. If, however, it was helping and has worn off, taking one additional tablet would be okay. Again, in the short-term.
Keep in mind zofran (ondansetron) is an opiate relative, which means if you have a drug or alcohol history or a family history, it is not your best choice. ...Read more

Need doctor's advice: Never alter the total dose, duration, frequency of daily use, nor start/stop a prescription drug without your doctor's advice. There is room to adjust zofran (ondansetron) here, but what are you treating? More importantly, what condition has worsened in you that warrants more zofran (ondansetron)? Ask your doctor to find the cause, not just treat your symptoms. ...Read more

Esrd pt was just discharged from long hospital stay, receiving high dose dilaudid & Zofran (ondansetron) which were d/c'd abruptly. Now acute wd sx. Help w/ mgmt?

See Previous Answer: You basically have three options: resume opiates and taper gradually to minimize withdrawal. Use subutex (buprenorphine) as a replacement opiate which has less withdrawal issues. Use meds which block withdrawal symptoms like clonidine. The problem with the last option is that it can drastidcally lower your BP which might make your dialysis management difficult. ...Read more

8 weeks pregnant with third baby with extreme vomiting. Have zofran (ondansetron) 8 mg. what's the correct dose to take for pregnancy? Exhausted all other options

Talk to your OB: Zofran (ondansetron) is dosed one every 12-24 hours but if your vomiting is that severe talk to your OB. Adequate nutrition is essential for a healthy baby and mom and at times hyperalimentation can be necessary. You also want to be sure that there isn't something else going on causing the nausea.

Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?

Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?

Usually not : The 3- month prep is used every 3 months. Studies have shown its effectiveness suppressing gonadotropins in children using it that way. I've not encountered it used monthly, nor are there published studies using that formulation monthly. If 11.25 mg isn't working, there is an effective 30 mg dose which is used every 3 months. The supprelin implant which is annually replaced is also very effective. ...Read more

The haemogoblin result for my 9,5months old baby is 11. Is this number satisfying or is he anemic? Should I give him additional iron drops? His pediatric advice 0,5ml of iron drops per day but somehow I am not really sure of this iron supplement. Help.

Maybe: A hemoglobin of 11 is lower than average but still within the range of normal for a baby of 9.5 months. Your pediatrician may have additional results (low ferritin, microcytic red blood cells, etc.) suggesting a heightened risk for anemia. Babies age 9-24 months are at increased risk for anemia due to rapid growth and changes in diet. In addition to iron drops high-iron foods will help too. ...Read more
