Zofran Lawsuit and Recall
Zofran is an anti-nausea drug that’s used “off-label” for morning illness, connected with a 30% greater chance of birth defects along with a double chance of heart defects and cleft palate, based on several recent lawsuit reports. Zofran was manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and approved within the in 1991 in the United States. The very first generic versions were approved in the year 2006.
In recent year, Zofran lawyers are trying hard to look for the connection between Zofran taken for morning illness during the entire initial trimester of being pregnant and heavy fetal injuries including cleft lip, cleft palate and hereditary heart defects. We know there are now solid evidences that Zofran (ondansetron) might be the reason for these defects.
The Food and drug administration never approved this drug for morning illness and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturer of the drug, compensated a $2 billion settlement in the civil suit that involved accusations that GSK unlawfully marketed its Zofran drug to become recommended to expectant moms. This settlement didn’t include obligations for injuries experienced because of using Zofran. Your child and you might be legally titled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, lack of earnings, emotional hardship along with other damages.
Doctors recommend Zofran (ondansetron) to women that are pregnant as their treatment of vomiting and nausea throughout pregnancy. Regrettably, studies found this medicine leads to birth defects, and people are taking drug manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline to the court, saying it promoted the drug to women that are pregnant without Food and drug administration approval.
