  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • Intravenous treatment with Vancomycin and zofran for crippling nausea. Five weeks treatment uneventful. Bactrim added for three days. Creatinine increasing. Severe nausea unresolved by the zofran, 4 mg. every eight hours. Changed to 8 mg. loading dose and two subsequent 8mg doses, now nausea is continuous. Is this related to renal changes, zofran resistance or something else.
