    Ondansetron 12mg isn't doing anything. Still throwing up everything I eat.

    Metaclopromide?
    That's a prescription drug, since the zofran completely failed I've lost faith in my doctor helping me. I haven't held food down in a week and I need to eat. Do you know anything other than the usual ginger/peppermint crap that might work? I'm getting kinda desperate.

    Isn't ondansetron also POM?
    At any rate if you can get it i still recommend taking it, it works wonders for me when im feeling ill.
    For something OTC Compazine might work?

    You definitely need to see your GP again and probably have a referral to a gastroenterologist to get to the bottom of the problem.

    Metoclopramide is an option, alongside granisetron but it's up to the doctor to decide if they want to prescribe it. Cyclizine is pretty effective and is available over the counter.
