Was your baby born with a cleft palate?
If you took Zofran, then there’s a good chance that’s why.
Many doctors prescribe Zofran to mothers during the first trimester of their pregnancy. It’s used to treat the symptoms of morning sickness – nausea and vomiting. And it has a history of working well.
The problem is, the FDA never approved it for this usage.
You shouldn’t be upset with your doctor though. It was GlaxoSmithKline — the manufacturer — who started marketing this drug off-label.
Zofran is FDA-approved for its original design – to treat nausea associated with chemotherapy and post-surgery recovery. NOT pregnancy.
And studies show that when used during the first trimester of pregnancy, Zofran can pass into the placenta and HARM THE BABY.
A cleft palate is one of the many birth defects associated with the use of Zofran during pregnancy.
Other birth defects include:
- hole in the heart
- heart murmur
- cleft lip
- missing kidney
