New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2015 -- According to some fresh reports in and around the country, several cases have been filed questioning the Zofran prescription for pregnant women. In one of the Zofran lawsuits, the anti-nausea drug has been blamed for heart defects and other congenital deformities borne by the babies exposed to Zofran in the uterus.
It has been reported that in the year 2013, over a million hopeful mothers in the US were prescribed Zofran or Zuplenz as a means to control nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. But, the safety of Zofran in relation to a developing fetus had never been analyzed and studied thoroughly. With the evidences that have cropped up in recent weeks linking Zofran with birth defects, a few legal claims and lawsuits have been filed in US courts. These litigations are on behalf of those children who were supposedly harmed by their mothers' exposure to Zofran while in the stage of pregnancy.
Almost all the lawsuits blame GlaxoSmithKline for failing to adequately warn women and the medical society about the potential birth defects that may result out of using Zofran during pregnancy. Although Zofran had never been approved by the FDA of US, some of the litigations accuse the company of engaging in illegal marketing and promoting its use. Back in 2014, a medical journal titled Reproductive Toxicology had suggested that using the prescriptions during the early stages of pregnancy can result in an increased risk for heart defects.
Many cases related to the Zofran prescription has been filed over the last few weeks and legal experts predict that the numbers will only increase. For a victim of the Zofran birth defect it is essential to seek legal help and get it solved out at the earliest. Legal firms like Bernstein Liebhard LLP provide free legal consultations on any Zofran lawsuit to help determine their practicability.
