Zofran (ondansetron) is an anti-nausea drug commonly prescribed “off-label” to pregnant women with morning sickness.
Unfortunately, the safety of Zofran for a fetus is not well-studied and has been linked to an increased risk of a range of devastating birth defectswhen taken in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Some of the birth defects that have been linked to Zofran include:
- Heart defects such as heart murmurs, abnormal heart rhythms, and atrial septal defect
- Kidney defects such as ectopia, malrotation, horshoe kidney, kidney agenesis, polycystic kidney disease, medullary sponge kidney, and cystinosis
- Musculoskeletal defects such as clubfoot, cleft palate, omphalocele, gastroschisis, and webbed toes
