Zofran usually has no withdrawal symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank You for contacting HCM. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.

I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. Zofran (ondansetron) blocks the actions of chemicals in the body that can trigger nausea and vomiting. So basically it has antiemetic effect. It usually has no withdrawal symptoms. Flu/cold causes spasm of muscles resulting in such feeling. It will take few days to improve. meanwhile following measures will help ease you:

- Naproxen thrice a day for 3 days
- Take hot water in a cup, add 1 table spoon salt in it. Perform gargles (mouth wash) with it three times a day for at least 3 days. It will give soothing effect.
- Take boiling water in a pot, put your head over the steam and cover whole with a sheet. Take deep breaths in it.(Avoid getting closer else it might cause burn). Do this twice a day.

AVOID:
> Chilled water
> Drinks
> Spicy food


Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
