Drug Alert: Zofran & Birth Defects

Zofran (generic name: ondansetron) is a prescription medication used to treat nausea and vomiting in pregnant women. Recent studies have shown that Zofran can have serious side effects for both mother and infant.

Though it still allows the medication to be prescribed, the FDA has stated that taking Zofran while pregnant can lead to potentially serious side effects. The most common of these side effects include the following birth defects:

  • Musculoskeletal anomalies
  • Mouth deformities
  • Jaundice
  • Heart defects

If you or your baby suffered traumatic side effects as a result of taking Zofran, don’t delay. Call Law Offices of Gary Green toll-free at 1-888-4GARYGREEN or email us at ggreen@gGreen.com.
