Drug companies sometimes fail to adequately warn expectant mothers that certain drugs increase the chance of birth defects. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), one of the most popular anti-nausea drugs on the market increases the risk that children will be born with birth defects and birth injuries. Zofran®, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, is commonly prescribed by doctors to reduce nausea in pregnant women, even though the drug has not been approved to treat morning sickness. Prescribing Zofran to pregnant women is an off-label use of the common prescription drug.
You and your family rely on your medication and your doctor to keep you safe. We created the Zofran® Birth Defect guide to help parents understand birth defects associated with Zofran:
- Kidney failure
- Heart defects and heart murmurs
- Cleft lip and cleft palate
- Organ malformation or malpositioning
