What’s the Problem?

According to the lawsuit, plaintiff Katherine Murray was prescribed Zofran (generic: ondansetron) “off-label” for morning sickness during pregnancy. Her daughter was born in 2007 and subsequently diagnosed with severe heart defects which required open heart surgery when she was 4 years old.

The complaint alleges that none of the defects would have occurred if GSK had not concealed the risks associated with using Zofran during pregnancy.

“We are deeply grateful for the excellent medical care our daughter has received,” Katherine said. “But it has been a long struggle to address damage to her heart that we believe was caused by Zofran. We hope our lawsuit helps raise the awareness of the dangers of the drug.”

The complaint, which was filed September 29 in San Francisco federal court, alleges negligence, misrepresentation, concealment, breach of warranty and violations of California law. The Murrays are seeking compensatory and punitive damages against GlaxoSmithKline.

According to the complaint, the baby was born in late 2014 with Ebstein’s anomaly and a severely enlarged heart with an atrialized right ventricle that was not functioning. As a result of these problems, she was forced to undergo open-heart surgery just 5 days after being born; she died from resulting trauma less than a week later. Click here to learn more.
