Is Ondansetron Safe For Pregnant Women?
Morning. Want to ask. I was first pregnant at the age of 20w, but I had a history of chronic magh. Where even before becoming pregnant I was accustomed to nausea, vomiting. Once I became pregnant, my nausea and vomiting got worse. Every day without stopping. During pregnancy, you have been hospitalized every month. Thank you God, food + drinks, at least someone can come in. When my nausea is severe, I take Ondansetron (doctor’s prescription), to minimize nausea and prevent vomiting. Until now I still experience it, and continue to consume Ondansetron … Is that safe for the fetus? Thank you

Ondansentron is an antiemetic which is quite safe for pregnant women. Ondansentron can be quite safe for consumption if with the right dosage and rules. But it's better if indeed you often feel nauseous, then go to a gynecologist, so the doctor can check your condition directly first.
