Zofran® (ondansetron) is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat nausea and vomiting caused by cancer treatments and surgery. But the drug is also prescribed to treat patients suffering from a variety of off-label—or unapproved—uses, including severe morning sickness in pregnant women. But FDA data indicates that babies born to mothers who take Zofran while pregnant may be at risk of severe birth defects.

If you took Zofran to treat morning sickness and your child was born with birth defects, you may be entitled to compensation. Our drug injury lawyers want to help stop the harm caused by pharmaceutical company negligence, and we’re here to fight for your family’s rights. Contact our legal team now, and let us help you get started with your claim today.

Zofran® Birth Injury Risks

Developing fetuses are most vulnerable during the first trimester of pregnancy—when morning sickness is most common among expectant mothers. But data in the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System, a database of drug side effects and medication errors, indicates that using Zofran while pregnant may lead to certain birth defects, such as:

  • Cleft lip
  • Cleft palate
  • Heart defects
  • Kidney issues

GlaxoSmithKline, the drug company that produces Zofran, has stated that the fetal injury risks posed by ondansetron are not yet known. However, the company paid a $3 billion settlement in 2012 after the U.S. Department of Justice determined it was promoting Zofran, along with several other drugs, for off-label uses.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
