The study by the researchers at Harvard and Boston University’s Slone Epidemiology Center showed similar results to a group of Swedish researchers who analyzed various birth records from 1998-2012. Their results suggested that women who took Zofran in the early stages of their pregnancy were 62% more likely to deliver a baby with a major cardiovascular problem.
Many women are prescribed Zofran in the early stages of their pregnancy to treat morning sickness. The drug works to block the effects of serotonin. The drug is part of the class of drugs known as 5-HT3 receptor antagonists.
