A Resource For Families Harmed By Zofran
Zofran, also known by the name Ondansetron, is an anti-nausea medication manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. This drug is often prescribed to pregnant women. Tragically, the use of Zofran has been associated with birth defects, including:
- Heart defects
- Cleft palate
Numerous studies, some of which are decades old, have stated that the use of Zofran during pregnancy doubles the child’s risk of certain birth defects. Making matters worse, GlaxoSmithKline never received (Food and Drug Administration) FDA approval to treat pregnant women with Zofran. Despite this, GlaxoSmithKline marketed this drug to pregnant women.
At the present time, hundreds of families have brought claims against GlaxoSmithKline and generic manufacturers of the drug, seeking damages for:
- Failing to warn about the risk of birth defects
- Improperly marketing the drug
If you took Zofran or a generic form of Ondansetron during your pregnancy and your child was born with heart defects, a cleft palate or other types of birth defects, you may have a claim for damages. An attorney will be instrumental in helping you pursue all avenues of compensation.
