Zofran Claims & Settlements
The most common forms of treatment for cancer is a chemotherapy. Many patients believe that this could be one situation where the treatment is more difficult than the disease. Common side effects of chemotherapy are weight loss, lack of nutrition, and non-stop nausea. As a result, people lose their strength during the difficult process.
In a response to a need to curb nausea in chemotherapy patients and medical treatments, companies released pharmaceutical medications to help with this side effect. One of the most popular medications was manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and was known as Zofran. Zofran has been used for more than 20 years for patients that have had cancer and were taking chemotherapy as a treatment.
Recently, many reports on Zofran side effects and injuries have shed light on the controversial nature of the medication. Zofran is a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist and works by reducing the effects of serotonin in a patient. Serotonin is known to cause vomiting and nausea, and Zofran was being used to interrupt messages sent from the brains telling the body that is should feel nauseous and get ready to vomit.
Zofran Injury & Side Effects
In the past years, the FDA has taken action by releasing statements regarding the dangerous side effects of Zofran. GlaxoSmithKline has also added warnings to the labels about the potential problems and has also discontinued the 32-mg dose of Zofran, as it was too dangerous. The two main side effects of a Zofran injury are arrhythmia and irregular heartbeat. Arrhythmia is tough to diagnose due to the subtle outward symptoms.
Some examples of arrhythmia include:
- Fluttering and pounding in the chest
- Short of breath
