Anthony Quackenbush is a Fort Lauderdale Zofran Lawyer. Zofran is a drug used to prevent nausea and vomiting. However, it can have severe consequences. If you or your child have been affected by Zofran, you may have a case against the manufacturer of the drug.
Zofran is a drug that was originally manufactured by GSK. It first came on the market in 1991. Its active ingredient is Ondansetron Hydrochloride. Zofran was originally intended to be used to prevent nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. It was used for both children and adults.
Zofran began to cause problems when it began to be prescribed for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Although many women were prescribed Zofran to treat nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, it was never actually approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this use.
This sort of use of the drug is referred to as an “off-label” use because it is not what the drug was originally intended for. The manufacturer is still responsible even though the drug began to be used for another purpose (nausea and vomiting during pregnancy) rather than its intended use. This is because it was foreseeable to the manufacturer at the time of manufacturing that the drug would be used to treat nausea and vomiting in pregnant women and because the manufacturer actually knew that the drug was in fact being used for this alternative use. If the alternative use is foreseeable to the manufacturer, then the manufacturer will be responsible for harms caused by that alternative use.

Women are prescribed brand name Zofran as well as generic versions of the drug for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Generic versions include about thirty different types – including Sandoz. Most Zofran prescriptions prescribed today are now generic versions of the drug.
This Broward County Zofran Attorney represents clients who have been injured due to generic and brand name Zofran. The brand Zofran is now owned by Novartis (which purchased the drug from GSK). Manufacturers of the drug have consistently failed to warn users of the adverse consequences of the drug, and this can result in “failure-to-warn” products liability cases against the manufacturers. That is, if a product as designed can have hazardous consequences and the manufacturer of the drug knows this, the manufacturer must warn the intended user of those consequences. If the manufacturer doesn’t do this, then it will be liable when those negative consequences occur. Manufacturers of Zofran are no exception.Call this Broward County Zofran Law Firm Today
