Zofran Side Effect: Dizziness and Lightheadedness
Zofran is the brand name for the anti nausea medication (ondansetron hydrochloride) manufactured by British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. Since its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991, Zofran has been linked to a plethora of adverse side effects, including dizziness and lightheadedness. Dizziness and lightheadedness, in and of themselves are not particularly harmful, but they can severely affect one’s lifestyle and ability to earn a living. One danger associated with this side effect is falling, which can result in broken bones, concussions, and other serious injuries. A person suffering from dizziness and lightheadedness should take great care when climbing stairs or ladders, or standing up suddenly. A person whose occupation involves standing, climbing, or driving will be forced to lose a good deal of money if they suffer from dizziness or lightheadedness.
If you were prescribed Zofran and suffered dizziness or lightheadedness, you may be able to recover lost wages and any medical bills your condition contributed to (such as medical bills from a falling injury). If the dizziness has prevented you from participating in an activity you previously enjoyed (such as golfing or riding a bike), you may be able to get compensation for hedonic damages, which is the loss of joy of life.
