Zofran® Injuries

Pregnant Mothers at Risk for Birth Defects

Zofran® is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and was approved by the FDA in 1991 for treating nausea and vomiting in patients after undergoing chemotherapy or surgery. Zofran® is also prescribed for unapproved uses such as treating morning sickness in pregnant women. Zofran®, also known by its generic name Ondansetron, works by blocking serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls areas of the brain that trigger nausea and vomiting.

Was your child born with a serious birth defect?

Various studies have shown a correlation between Zofran® taken during pregnancy and birth defects. A 2011 study by the Slone Epidemiology Center and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed an increased risk of cleft palate defects in children whose mothers took Zofran® during the first trimester.
