We all trust the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to only let safe consumer products go to market. Unfortunately, the FDA’s resources do not allow for the most in-depth research to be conducted. It often relies on evaluations made by pharmaceutical companies — companies that are highly motivated to cover up potential dangers so they can realize the benefits of multimillion-dollar investments in new drug development.
Zofran (known in its generic form as ondansetron) is one such dangerous drug. Produced by GlaxoSmithKline, it was marketed as an ideal treatment for pregnant women who experience nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (NVP). Studies now show that Zofran has been linked to birth defects in the children whose mothers took the anti-nausea drug during pregnancy.
Despite other proven safe options for treating nausea and vomiting, such as doxylamine and pyridoxine, Zofran has been eagerly prescribed, and the results have been devastating for many families throughout the United States.
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we are working hard to right what has gone wrong for people who have taken defective and dangerous drugs like Zofran. Our clients include injured people throughout western Tennessee and surrounding areas of Arkansas and Mississippi. Since 1970, we have brought quality representation to the lives of individuals who have suffered because of another party’s negligence.
While nothing can undo the effects of Zofran on your and your child’s life, it is worthwhile to pursue aggressive legal action against the pharmaceutical company that harmed you. This was not your fault as a parent. Do not let a drug company get away with what happened. The company was focused on lining its pockets instead of showing concern for ethics, safety, and patient well-being.
