Zofran was approved by the FDA to treat vomiting caused by post operation drugs or chemotherapy. However, the drug was also marketed to pregnant women to treat morning sickness. This drug can cause birth defects such as holes in the heart, club foot, cleft lip, cleft palate, and skull deformities. GlaxoSmithKline knew about the possibility for these defects but still decided to market the drug to pregnant women. Large settlements have resulted from these cases. Generic versions of this drug are called Ondansetron and a similar version is called Zuplenz. If a doctor has prescribed any of these drugs to treat morning sickness or you have been given these drugs while pregnant and had a child with a birth defect, then seek legal counsel.
