Did you take the prescription medication Zofran (generic name of Ondansetron) anytime during your first trimester of pregnancy?

If your child suffers from severe birth defects, and your doctor prescribed Zofran (or Ondansetron Hydrochloride) during your first trimester — you may be eligible for a substantial claim.


  • Major birth defects have been shown to occur within the first trimester exposure to Zofran. 

  • Birth defects connected to first trimester exposure to Zofran include:

    • Congenital Heart Malformations including, but not limited to, Atrial Septal Defect (“ASD”) and Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)

    • Cleft Palate

    • Cleft Lip

    • Possible other malformations such as clubbed foot and craniosynostosis.

  • Generic forms of Zofran, known as Ondansetron Hydrochloride, began being sold in 2007.

  • To determine if you took Zofran or the generic version during the first trimester, pharmacy records and OB/GYN records or documentation should be available. 

  • Zofran and its generic version (Ondansetron Hydrochloride) are available in injection form, tablets, oral solution, and disintegrating tablets.

  • Zofran has never been approved for use as treatment for morning sickness, also known as Nausea and Vomiting Pregnancy (“NVP”), during pregnancy.




Does your child suffer from serious birth defects due to Zofran prescribed while pregnant?


The use of Zofran while pregnant may have increased the risk of side effects in babies including:


  • Heart Damage/Defects

  • Kidney Defects

  • Cleft Lip or Palate

  • Club Foot
