Hi,

Thank you for your query.

I will need some more information to answer you better.
1. Are you having palpitations,headaches and neck aches as well?
2.Did the doctor prescribe this medicine for you?
3. Are you taking any other drugs along with this drug?
4.Are there any other complaints other than these?

This drug usually causes mood disorders, hypertension, tremors, overactive reflexes, stomach cramps, and constipation.
Neck pain and pain near the thyroid gland is not common with this medication.

Tablet Calpol 500mg 3 times daily, after food, can relieve pain to some extent.

If the problem persists, consult your physician. Please check your blood pressure when you are on this drug.

If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.

Hope this answers your query. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Regards

I have been sick for about two weeks it started with nausea and loss of appetite headaches for about a week then one night I had an onset of sever vomiting some diarrhea and sever stomach cramps I could barely walk. I could not hold down anything and after about 17 hours I went to the DR. they gave me some kind of shot in my butt to help the vomiting and put me on Zofran. This has helped me keep down some liquids and very small amounts of select foods. I still have no appetite, I have to force myself to eat, and often through up after words. When the Zofran wears off I feel worse and get stomach cramps. What is going on???
