Zofran Recall Information

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet issued a recall for Zofran despite the fact that the drug has been linked to serious medical complications.

Many of these conditions affect newborn babies due to mothers using the drug during their pregnancy. Some of the potential side effects a newborn baby can possess are birth defects, musculoskeletal anomalies, jaundice, kidney malformation, and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR).

In some rare cases, unborn fetuses have died due to complications caused by the drug. The FDA is still in the process of reviewing data and scientific studies to determine if the medication should be recalled from the market.

Although Zofran was not yet recalled, you can still pursue a lawsuit if you or someone you care about has been harmed by the drug. If you were prescribed Zofran and experienced pregnancy complications, you may be entitled to compensation. Settlements include compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and psychological harm.

Our Zofran drug attorneys can help you if you or someone you care about was harmed by Zofran. Lawsuits are being contemplated against the drug producer by both patients and their families seeking compensation for damage caused by this dangerous drug. You may be entitled to a settlement.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Zofran Lawsuit?

Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, Zofran (ondansetron) was approved to treat nausea during chemotherapy and following surgery.
