Zofran® Injuries

Mothers reporting birth defects to FDA.

Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and approved by the FDA in 1991 for treating nausea and vomiting in patients after undergoing chemotherapy or surgery, Zofran® is also prescribed for unapproved uses such as treating morning sickness in pregnant women. Zofran®, also known by its generic name ondansetron, works by blocking serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls areas of the brain that trigger nausea and vomiting.
