According to a Danish study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the popular anti-nausea drug, Zofran, is safe to treat morning sickness and vomiting during pregnancy.
Dr. Bjorn Pasternak, and his team from the State Serum Institute in Copenhagen, collected data from over 600,000 pregnancies in their massive study of the popular medication’s side-effects. According to the findings, Zofran, which is manufactured by pharmaceutical powerhouse GlaxoSmithKline, does not cause birth defects or birth injuries as some patient and medical professional groups fear.
Dr. Iffath Hoskins, of the New York City Langone Medical Center and spokesperson for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, confirmed the study’s findings. Dr. Hoskins indicated that Zofran is effective in treating morning sickness and vomiting, while being completely safe for use during pregnancy.
Before this study, roughly 1 in 10 pregnant women who suffered from morning sickness refused the medication, fearing that it would have a negative side effect on their child. This study apparently now affirms that Zofran is both effective and safe to use.
