Ondansetron, often recognized by its brand name Zofran, is not only prescribed for nausea and vomiting related to surgeries or chemotherapy but is also increasingly used as an adjunct treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) management and as part of ketamine therapy protocols. Given its expanding uses, many patients are seeking this medication, but are met with the challenges of its cost—particularly those without comprehensive insurance. Fortunately, there are pathways to access this pivotal medication without breaking the bank. Two of the leading options are GoodRx and CostPlus. This article will guide you through using these services to make your Ondansetron treatment more affordable.
