Zofran is a very popular prescription medication that some women take during their pregnancy to treat severe morning sickness and vomiting. Initially, Zofran was a medication used to treat nausea in cancer patients. Unfortunately, Zofran may not have been sufficiently studied or tested for safety in pregnant women.
In fact, Zofran was NEVER approved to treat nausea in pregnant women suffering from morning sickness.
Some women who take Zofran during their pregnancy may have children who are perfectly healthy — but that doesn’t mean it is the case for all women. Instead, taking Zofran during pregnancy may cause your child to be born with birth defects including cleft palate and heart defects such as atrial septal defect (ASD) and ventricular septal defect (VSD).
Since Zofran has been a popular drug to treat morning sickness for some time, there may be countless women, children and even young adults today who suffered from Zofran’s potentially devastating associated risk of birth defects.
Filing a Zofran lawsuit is about holding a powerful pharmaceutical company accountable for promoting the off-label use of Zofran.
To help make this right for the children, mothers and fathers affected by Zofran’s associated risks, a Zofran lawsuit may be a way to create change. Filing a case may help to minimize Zofran’s potential risk to future families by raising awareness and pharmaceutical accountability, while also helping to compensate the children who were hurt by Zofran —providing them money that can be used for expensive medical bills.
It’s the right thing to do, and we’re happy to be helping many families with the Zofran lawsuit today.
