What is Zofran?
Zofran (ondansetron) is a drug approved to treat nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing chemotherapy and surgery. Zofran works by blocking certain chemicals in the body that can cause nausea and vomiting.
Zofran was developed by GlaxoSmithKline and approved in 1991. A generic version of Zofran was introduced in 2006 and is still in use today.
The FDA never approved Zofran to treat morning sickness and nausea while pregnant, but the drug has been used “off-label” by pregnant women since it was introduced. Recent studies have shown that Zofran significantly increases the risk of certain types of birth defects when taken during pregnancy.
