Zofran is an anti-nausea medication that puts developing babies at serious risk for birth defects when it is taken by pregnant mothers. Zofran was originally developed to help with nausea in cancer patients and was never FDA approved for use by pregnant women. However, the manufacturer of Zofran, GlaxoSmithKline, illegally promoted use of Zofran for morning sickness and nausea in expectant mothers.
Zofran has been linked to serious birth defects, such as:
- Congenital heart defects
- Musculoskeletal deformities
- Cleft lip and cleft palate
- Kidney defects
