Anti-Nausea Drug May Be Linked to Deaths of Children

The makers of an anti-nausea medication are facing lawsuits alleging the drug harmed children. Research is available that suggests the drug may be fatal for some children. Two children who were given the drug and later died are the subjects of the research. It is alleged that after being given the drug, both children, a 10-year-old and an infant, developed heart problems and subsequently died. There are additional concerns that the drug may lead to birth defects in children.

The drug is approved to treat nausea related to chemotherapy treatments but is frequently also used to treat nausea related to other causes. The drug does specify a warning concerning the risk of heart problems. An additional use that the drug is sometimes prescribed for includes morning sickness in pregnant women. Claims have been made concerning roughly 20 women who had babies with birth defects that may be linked to the use of the drug while pregnant. In addition, there is conflicting research concerning the drug's link to certain birth defects.

Cases of drug liability can be complex. For Dallas families that have suffered a pharmaceutical injury or other harm related to harmful drugs, the complexity of the circumstances they face can extend to emotional suffering, as well as economic and physical harm and loss. Drug companies can also face complex challenges related to drug liability and pharmaceutical liability lawsuits.

When pharmaceuticals perform as expected and intended, it is a definite benefit, however, when harmful drugs lead to injury and harm, a difficult situation can be faced by both victims and drug companies. What is important when facing the complexity of a pharmaceutical injury is to understand available remedies, resources, and options thoroughly and early on in the process.
