Welcome

Zofran (ondansetron)

If you’ve taken Zofran during pregnancy and your child was born with birth defects including malformations of the mouth (cleft lip or palate), heart defects, skeletal issues, heart murmurs, jaundice or other similar side effects related to the developmental health of an infant, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit.

About Zofran

Zofran (common name ondansetron) is a prescription drug developed by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to treat symptoms of nausea in cancer patients. However, Zofran has been prescribed by some physicians to treat nausea and vomiting in pregnant women.

According to several studies, Zofran use has been linked to birth defects—including malformations of the mouth (cleft lip or cleft palate), heart defects and other birth defects—in children of mothers who took Zofran during pregnancy.

Zofran Birth Defects

Studies linking Zofran use during pregnancy to birth defects have found specific injuries that could be related to Zofran use.

One study found malformations of the mouth, commonly known as a cleft lip or cleft palate, could be related to Zofran use by mothers while pregnant. These malformations range from visible facial marks to severe developmental issues that can cause difficulty eating or breathing.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a database for reports of injuries from drug use, called the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS). Adverse event reports from Zofran use during pregnancy include musculoskeletal anomaly, jaundice, heart murmurs, and other forms of heart defects as side effects of Zofran use during pregnancy.

If you’ve taken Zofran during pregnancy and gave birth to a child with birth defects—cleft lip/palate, heart defects, developmental abnormalities—you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
