Presciptions for Nausea

  • Phenergan (generic-promethazine)
    • Phenergan comes in a tablet form and is an older medication but works extremely well for nausea.
      • Take one tablet every 4-6 hours as needed.
  • Zofran (generic-ondansetron)
    • Zofran is a new medication for nausea which does NOT make you sleepy.
    • Zofran comes in sublingual tablet form.
      • Dissolve one tablet under your tongue every 6 hours as needed.
      • You can take Zofran and Phenergan together.
  • Emend (generic-aprepitant)
    • Emend is one of the newest anti-nausea medications.  It comes in a tablet form and can be swallowed.
    • It can be expensive, so we make it optional for patients.
    • If you do opt for Emend, take it immediately upon arrival to your procedure.
      • Sometimes a second tablet will be prescribed, if so take it the morning of post op day 1.
