I haven’t heard of it before- but I have heard of phenergan.  Wonderful stuff for nausea!  Feel better!

My Darling Husband has to take that when he is perscribed pain medicines.  How the doctor explained it that is that the medicine blocks the stomachs ablility to contract basically numbing the stomach muscles.  Works really well for him when he has had to take it.

I’ve taken Zofran with both my pregnancies.  For some people, it really only works for nausea, but for most people it controls both nausea and vomiting.  Common side effects include headaches and constipation, so make sure you’re getting enough water and maybe bulk up on your fiber (Fiber one bars are great, btw!).

I’m sorry you’re not feeling well.  🙁  I hope you feel better soon!

I’m 24 weeks, and I’ve been taking Zofran since week 7.  It’s a life saver for me.  For me it controls the vomiting more so than the nausea.  I’ll still get nauseous, and I’ll gag, but I won’t throw up.

@seg31085:  I hope you feel better soon!  I’m a really rare case of someone having nausea throughout the entire pregnancy.  For most people it goes away completely after the 1st trimester (or so I’m told).  Unfortunately, the lack of energy is just a general 1st trimester symptom that might have nothing to do with the nausea.  The good news is it goes away after your 1st trimester too!

While not pregnant, I have taken zofran on and off since 2006 with a really weak stomach. 

I like it better than phenegran because i doesn’t make me sleepy. I was told it was presecribed for pregnant women and cancer paitents. But I started taking it after a bad reaction with anesthesia after surgery. 

You can get it generic at most pharmacies. “odnestran” or something like it.
