Zofran TV commercial advertisements cite a number of Zofran complications as potential reasons for filing a lawsuit. These may include, but are not limited to:
In addition to cosmetic and cardiovascular side effects, Zofran is also associated with kidney problems that may range in severity. The medication may cause one or both of a child’s kidneys to not work correctly, or result in an abnormality that blocks the flow of urine. People with this condition, which is referred to as hydronephrosis, have kidneys that are visibly enlarged when viewed on an ultrasound. Zofran babies may also sustain urinary tract damage, or reflux, which is when the connector of a person’s ureter and bladder does not work correctly and causes urine to back up into the kidneys.
If you saw a Zofran commercial, it was likely after a Toronto Star investigation in June 2014 that found nearly two dozen side effect reports from Canadian women who used Zofran to control morning sickness during pregnancy and gave birth to children who suffered dangerous complications that may be linked to use of the medication. The adverse events were all filed in 2012 on behalf of 20 women in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s database, who alleged instances of heart defects, kidney issues and “fetal growth restriction.” Two infant deaths were also mentioned, investigators also found.
