Originally created to treat nausea following chemotherapy or surgery, some medical professionals prescribed Zofran off-label to women with severe morning sickness. Despite the fact that this drug was not proven safe for pregnant women to take, many doctors prescribed the medication to pregnant women anyways, and the maker of the drug, GlaxoSmithKline, has been accused of promoting the medication for this off-label use. Sadly, Zofran has since been associated with a number of severe side effects, including birth defects in babies born to women who took Zofran while pregnant.

Our legal team understands just how devastating these cases can be and we are committed to providing victims with the aggressive legal representation and dedicated support that they need.
