For those of you that have to take anti nausea pills, which one do you like better?  I currently take Phenegran, but it knocks me out and I can barely function.  It is ok for night but I also need it during the day.  I was on Zofran once before, but I can't remember if it made me slepy or not.  Anyone whoe has been on Zofran, could you let me know if it knocks you out or not.  I usually cut the phenegran in half or fourths for the day, but it still makes me sleepy and I really need someting that will calm my stomach better.  I guess I should tell you that I have chronic pancreatitis as well so that attributes to some of the nauses as well.  Any thoughts would bea appreciated, if this makes any sense!  Ha!
Thanks,

I was on Zofran when I was pregnant, and it did not make me sleepy...that's one of the reasons I took it. Good Luck!

I'm on zofran and don't get sleepy from it. Though I am suppose to take it every 6 hours it really only lasts about 3.

phenogren is your friend, lol.  It works better than zofran, and i personally liked the sleeping part of it!
zofran won't knock you out or even make you sleepy, but i don't think it works as good
