Hi I've suffered HG from week five and have been hospitalised on four occassions for rehydration etc. At 11 weeks I was prescibed 4mg of Zofan once a day and have been on it now for 12 weeks. Although I have managed to cut down, I now alternate 1/2 and the following day 1/4 wafer, I'm stll quite nauseous and vomit if I don't take it. Is it ok for me to still be taking it at 23 weeks?
Unfortunately, a small number of women continue to suffer from NVP throughout their pregnancy and require treatment until their baby is born. You should not worry about taking the Zofran as prescribed by your doctor.
