Zofran & the 2012 Settlement
While doctors are not prohibited from prescribing drugs “off-label,” manufacturers are prohibited by federal law from promoting their products off-label. In 2012, GlaxoSmithKline entered into a $3 billion settlement with the United States Justice Department to resolve allegations of fraud and illegal promotion of several prescription medications—including Zofran. This was the largest healthcare fraud settlement in U.S. history.
In recent years, several studies have linked the use of Zofran in the first trimester of pregnancy with a significant increase in the risk of birth defects including, but not limited to the following:
- Cleft Lip & Cleft Palate
- Musculoskeletal Defects
- Fetal Growth Restriction
- Craniosynostosis (Skull Deformities)
- Kidney Defects – Including Water Inside the Kidney
- Heart Defects – Heart Murmurs, Atrial Septal Defects & Holes in the Heart
