What is Zofran?
Zofran is the brand name of a drug called Ondansetron (or Ondansetron Hydrochloride). It was originally manufactured to relieve nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy as part of their treatment. It was approved by the FDA in 1991. However, Zofran was never approved for use by pregnant women.
Over the years, Zofran has been irresponsibly prescribed by doctors for off-label purposes, such as to alleviate “morning sickness” in pregnant women. Studies show that this drug is particularly dangerous for pregnant women who are in the first trimester—the infant’s most critical stage of development.
