A Brief History of Zofran (Ondansetron)
Zofran (also known by its generic name, ondansetron) is an anti-nausea
medication developed that entered the U.S. market in 1991. Generic brands
were made available in 2006. At the time Zofran was introduced for widespread
medical use in the United States, medical experts knew that it caused
a variety of mild to moderate side effects, including headaches and lightheadedness.
Over time, doctors discovered a possible link between Zofran and other
complications, such as severe birth defects. In 2013, researchers noticed a
200% increase in the number of heart-related defects in children whose
mothers took Zofran in the first trimester of pregnancy. If you suspect that Zofran is responsible
for your child’s birth defect, now is time to contact
the drug attorneys at Kelley/Uustal today.
