Zofran (Ondansetron) is a medication prescribed to pregnant women with the intention of curing nausea during the first trimester of pregnancy. Studies have linked Zofran to reports of birth defects, including cleft palate and heart mururs.
In 2011, the FDA issued a safety communication stating the anti-nausea drug Zofran may increase the risk of potentially fatal abnormal heart rhythms. Since then, lawsuits have been filed arguing first trimester Zofran exposure may lead to a higher risk of birth defects.
If a woman took Zofran for morning sickness during pregnancy, her child may have life-altering health problems. Common birth defects include:
- Cleft palate
- Cleft lip
- Kidney defect
- Heart Defect
- Death, miscarriage, or terminated pregnancy due to a heart defect
