An Alabama mother has filed a Zofran lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturers alleging that it caused her son’s severe birth defects. Julie Hunter charges that Zofran manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline failed to properly warn doctors and patients of the risks of severe birth defects associated with the anti-nausea drug.
Hunter’s 8-year old son Talon was born with a litany of serious birth defects, including a high narrow pallet, extra digits on his hands, a distended kidney and glaucoma. Hunter was given Zofran to combat morning sickness while pregnant with her son, though the drug has only been approved to treat nausea in post-surgery patients and patients dealing with cancer treatments.
Hunter alleges that taking Zofran while pregnant led to a chromosomal defect in her son which is responsible for his birth defects. She joins several other mothers who have filed Zofran birth defect lawsuits against GlaxoSmithKline alleging that the drug caused serious injuries in their children.
