Zofran is an anti-nausea and vomiting drug which has been widely prescribed “off-label” to treat pregnant women suffering from morning sickness.
Despite a lack of evidence establishing Zofran was safe for pregnant women, lawsuits allege that the manufacturer of Zofran actively promoted off-label use and withheld important warnings about the potential link between Zofran and birth defects.
In 2012, the manufacturer of Zofran agreed to pay $3 billion to settle a criminal investigation stemming from the off-label promotion for pregnancy use of Zofran, as well as other illegal drug marketing and withholding safety data from U.S. regulators.
As a result of the drug maker’s failure to warn about the potential pregnancy side effects of Zofran, many children may have experienced severe and potentially life-threatening birth defects and congenital malformations.
If you or a loved one used Zofran gave birth to a child with:
- Cleft Lip
- Cleft Palate
- Heart Defect
You and your child may be entitled to significant compensation from the manufacturer.
