Zofran (ondansetron) is a medication that can alleviate nausea and vomiting. It works by blocking the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can trigger these symptoms. Zofran is often used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery. It can also be used to alleviate nausea and vomiting caused by other conditions, such as motion sickness or gastroenteritis.
Zofran is available as an injection that can be given intravenously or intramuscularly. The injection can provide rapid relief from nausea and vomiting, improving quality of life for those experiencing these symptoms.
