Zofran® is an anti-nausea medication given to patients to decrease their symptoms. It is sometimes used by doctors to treat morning sickness in expectant mothers. However, Zofran is not FDA approved for treating morning sickness and has been linked to an increased risk of birth defects.
If you took Zofran during pregnancy and your baby was born with a birth defect, call our experienced lawyers at The Gilbert Law Group today at (303) 431-1111.
Children of women who have taken Zofran during pregnancy may suffer from severe birth defects, such as:
Researchers have found that Zofran may double the risk of heart defects and cleft palate for your baby and increases the likelihood of any birth defect by 30 percent.
Heart defects that have been linked to Zofran include:
A cleft palate is a birth defect involving a split in the roof of the mouth that can extend to the soft palate, the back of the throat. A cleft lip is a split in the upper lip. Either defect can make feeding your infant difficult and lead to malnutrition. Multiple reconstructive surgeries are often necessary to correct these defects.
