If you or someone you know is currently taking Zofran while pregnant, please consider the risks. Furthermore, Zofran is an anti-nausea medicine mainly used for those who had recently had surgery, or are currently receiving cancer treatments. In addition, although the FDA has not approved Zofran as safe for use in pregnant women, that haven't stopped the makers, GlaxoSmithKline, from heavily marketing it as such. Moreover, GSK has been receiving notices from patients since 1992, claiming the use in pregnancy results in babies born with birth defects.
Likewise, it was found in testing on animals that Zofran is not safe for use in pregnant women. Additionally, it was also found that Zofran reaches past the placental barrier. Sadly, many pregnant women were unknowingly taking Zofran, and having babies with birth defects such as: cleft lip, cleft palate, and heart defects. Now, the families are seeking answers from the pharmaceutical giant, on how they could be so knowingly negligent.
