Zofran Lawsuits

Zofran has caused many drug injuries to both pregnant women and their unborn children. Some of these have been quite severe. The Zofran birth defects that have occurred include congenital heart defects, such as irregular heart rhythm, and cleft lip and cleft Birth Defect Lawsuitspalate. The medication also has been found to cause a higher risk of heart issues in the women who took the drug for their morning sickness. Zofran was not FDA approved for use by pregnant women.  Zofran was not tested to determine its safety for pregnant women and their children, and it was marketed off-label by the manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline. Since patients were not aware of the very serious dangers associated with taking this prescription drug for morning sickness, Zofran manufacturer should be held responsible for their actions in pushing doctors to prescribe it to the women.

What is Zofran?

Zofran is a drug that was originally created to help chemotherapy patients treat nausea and vomiting. It works by blocking serotonin and serotonin receptors that are found in the brain and gut, preventing nerve messages being sent to the nausea and vomiting centers. Zofran was not created to help pregnant women with morning sickness. However, GlaxoSmithKline started marketing Zofran to pregnant women, saying it could help with their morning sickness. They even gave kickbacks and encouraged doctors to prescribe it to pregnant women, even though it had not tested Zofran for side effects with pregnant women or received approval by the FDA for that use.

Current Zofran Lawsuit Settlements

Zofran Manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline, plead guilty to fraud and illegal marketing of the product.  Zofran manufacturer even gave kickbacks to doctors to encourage them to prescribe it to women. They paid $3 billion after an order by the Justice Department, however this settlement was not for specific injuries suffered by pregnant women or their children. The settlement only applies to Zofran fraud and illegal marketing.

Zofran Side Effects

There is a long list of side effects that are known, as well as potential side effects that are related to taking the prescription drug Zofran. If you have experienced any of these or your child was born with any of these defects or issues, you will want to take legal action. Side effects include, but are not exclusive to, the following:

  • Congenital heart defects
  • Fetal growth restriction
  • Jaundice
  • Cleft palate
  • Cleft lip
  • Kidney issues
  • Complications with pregnancy
  • Birth defects

There have been extensive studies done with the last several years that have shown that Zofran crosses the placenta and can harm the child. Research that was conducted in Denmark showed that the risk of heart-related birth defects doubled when the mother took Zofran. Results of those studies also indicated that there is a 30 percent increase in birth defects in general from Zofran. These statistics are high and point to great negligence on the part of the manufacturer for the fact that they did not do adequate testing before marketing Zofran to pregnant women.

The fact that many children have suffered injuries due to exposure to Zofran while in the womb is extremely serious when it comes to the law. GlaxoSmithKline has admitted their part and taken responsibility, by offering settlement money that is already in an account for people who come forward with evidence of their Zofran injuries. Lawyers in all 50 states are hearing cases and helping people to get the justice that they deserve.
