Who should not take Zofran?

Do not take Zofran if you are allergic to the active ingredient, ondansetron. Talk to your doctor before taking Zofran if you have liver disease, are undergoing stomach surgery or have the genetic condition called PKU. You may still be able to use Zofran, which prevents nausea and vomiting after surgery and cancer treatments, but you may need to take special precautions. You should not take Zofran if you are also taking other medications, including apomorphine (a Parkinson’s drug) or dronedarone (a heart drug). There are many other drugs that can interact poorly with Zofran so talk with your doctor or pharmacist about the other medications you are taking before taking Zofran. Zofran can be taken during pregnancy. But it is not known whether it is safe to take while breastfeeding, so talk to your doctor first.
