Zofran Birth Injury Cases Still Being Filed

“Here is a drug not meant for pregnancy, given in pregnancy, with no data. So how do you know it’s safe for a baby?” asks Dr. Gideon Koren, director of Motherrisk, a Canadian nonprofit that assists pregnant women.

Dr. Koren is talking about Zofran, a medication commonly prescribed to pregnant women to ease their nausea. Although Zofran was developed to treat cancer patients suffering from nausea as a result of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, doctors can legally prescribe the drug however they wish. Recent studies show that when prescribed to pregnant women, Zofran can come with serious side effects for both mother and baby.

If you or someone you love has suffered as a result of taking Zofran, contact Law Offices of Gary Green today to discuss your legal options. Call us toll-free at 1-888-4GARYGREEN or email ggreen@gGreen.com.
