Zofran and Birth Defects
If you were taking Zofran during your pregnancy, you may have been unaware of the potential harmful side effects that this drug may have had on your unborn child. GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Zofran failed to adequately warn mothers of the possible harmful birth defects this drug could cause if taken during the early stages of pregnancy. Zofran was originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat nausea and sickness caused by chemotherapy in cancer patients. It was never approved by the FDA for use by pregnant women.
If you or a loved one took Zofran during pregnancy and gave birth to a child with any of the following birth defects, please call our law firm:

FDA Issues Warning of Potential Signals of Serious Risk
In 2013, the FDA issued a warning of potential signals of serious risk for several drugs including Zofran. The warning was issued because of the high number of adverse events concerning these drugs in the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System. As of July 2014, the FDA was still evaluating the situation and there have been no updates since that time.
GlaxoSmithKline and Zofran
You and your child shouldn’t have to suffer because of the negligence of GlaxoSmithKline. GlaxoSmithKline is a British pharmaceutical company. Its product Zofran was approved for use by the FDA in 1998 to combat nausea from chemotherapy in cancer patients. In 2013, Glaxo made almost $18 billion in profits.
