Zofran Studies

A lot of talk has been going around about the use of medications during FPIES reactions, particularly Zofran. Here are a few links to articles researching the use of Zofran with little ones (infants, toddlers, preschool age). Just bear in mind that the article is not related to FPIES or allergies, but merely to cases of acute gastroenteritis being seen in the ER (like bacterial or viral stomach bugs). We are quite opposed to use Zofran for B's reactions (after a pretty horrible experience) and I think if you read between the lines and think carefully about the nature of an FPIES reaction for your LO, you may find it might not be the best choice to medicate with Zofran during a reaction. Enjoy the "light" reading!
