Zofran Use During Pregnancy Linked to Birth Defects

Zofran Use During Pregnancy Linked to Birth Defects

Zofran is an anti-nausea medication used to help patients suffering from cancer, and those who become queasy after surgery. For those uses, the FDA has cleared Zofran as safe to use. On the other hand, in the treatment of morning sickness, the FDA has placed Zofran in category B, yet the makers of the drug have ignored such warnings and marketed the drug as safe for pregnant users.

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is the makers of the drug Zofran, and is now under fire for negligence and failure to warn. Furthermore, GSK knew that Zofran reached beyond the placental barrier in animal testing, and the company ignored the warnings and continued to push the drug to pregnant patients. Now, women who took Zofran during their first trimester of pregnancy have had babies born with cleft palate, cleft lip, and heart defects.
