Zofran is normally prescribed to women during their first trimester of pregnancy to help prevent feelings of nausea. Recent studies, however, have provided evidence suggesting the drug can raise the risk of serious birth defects in the unborn child. Since it’s approval by the FDA, thousands of women have been prescribed this medication without knowing the potential risks of taking it. According to recent data, some of the potential complications include:
- Heart murmurs
- Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)
- Kidney defects
- Mouth deformities
- Musculoskeletal anomalies
In February 2013, Danish researchers published a study that found women who took the drug Zofran during their first trimester of pregnancy were 30% more likely to have their baby develop complications. Legal experts are currently investigating the claims made by the drug manufacturer that their medication is safe. If you or a loved one has suffered birth defect complications due to Zofran usage, you may be entitled to a settlement.
