Zofran Lawsuit Lawyer

Zofran, also known by its generic name, Ondansetron, is a prescription medication that can be prescribed for nausea and vomiting; pregnant women experiencing severe symptoms are often prescribed the medication during the first trimester. Approved to treat nausea in chemotherapy patients in 1991, Glaxo-Smith-Kline (GSK) promoted off-label use of Zofran by women with moderate to severe morning sickness.

Although Zofran has shown effectiveness in treating nausea and vomiting, recent studies indicate that it also comes with serious side effects to both mother and infant. If you were taking Zofran during pregnancy and your child suffered a birth defect, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a Zofran lawsuit lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins today to schedule a free consultation and learn how we can help you recover compensation and hold the negligent manufacturer responsible for the harm your child has suffered.

What is Zofran?

Zofran works by blocking chemicals in the body responsible for nausea and vomiting. It can be taken orally, or through injections. Pregnant women experiencing nausea and/or vomiting, however, are usually given the oral tablet, which typically starts around 8 mg per tablet, taken once or twice per day.

What Are Zofran Side Effects?

With mounting reports of cardiac defects and cleft palates in the children of Zofran users, the Department of Justice fined the manufacturer $3,000,000,000 for promoting off-label use by pregnant women. Despite the fine, Zofran and its generic versions contain no warnings of birth defects. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), taking Zofran while pregnant can potentially lead to serious birth defects, yet many doctors still frequently prescribe it. 

Morning sickness is most often associated with the first trimester of pregnancy, women prescribed Zofran are taking it during an infant’s most crucial development period. Important to note that despite its potential risks, the FDA has not recalled Zofran nor has it required the manufacturer to change its label to warn the risks of birth defects.

The most common types of birth defects that can potentially come from Zofran include:

  • Cleft Lip/Palate
  • Tetralogy of Fallot
  • Spina Bifida
  • Wolfe-Parkinson- White
  • Pulmonary/ Aortic Stenosis
  • Endocarditis
  • Born with One Kidney
  • Atrial Septal Defect
  • Limb Deformities (including club foot)
  • Hypoplastic left heart Syndrome
  • Atrioventricular Septal Defect
  • Ventricular Septal Defect
