Warning: Taking Zofran During Pregnancy May Cause Birth Defects

Expectant mothers typically face an array of emotions which can range anywhere from sheer bliss to nervous anticipation about the health of the baby.  Unfortunately, pregnancy is often accompanied by morning sickness which can cause nausea, malaise, and vomiting. 


Zofran (ondansetron) is a drug that is approved by the FDA to treat nausea and vomiting. However, it was only approved for nausea associated with surgery and chemotherapy. Still, the powerful drug has been prescribed off-label to expectant mothers to ease similar symptoms. The off-label use may have been inappropriately promoted by Zofran’s manufacture, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).


The off-label use of Zofran is under an ongoing investigation for causing dangerous birth defects including cleft palate, cleft lip and heart malformations.  Panter, Panter & Sampedro is now investigating cases to determine if Zofran caused these and other serious birth defects.


If you or someone you know took Zofran while pregnant and had a baby born with a serious birth defect, contact our office for a free consultation.


We are now accepting cases regarding this issue and investigating how Zofran is causing birth injuries. You can call us at 305.662.6178 or email dsampedro@panterlaw.com.
