A Risk Report for Former Prozac Patients
Pregnancy is a tough time for many women. Their physical, emotional, and hormonal changes can be significant. These changes can have a significant collateral effect, too. A 2009 study by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists found that 23 percent of women have at least one depressive episode during pregnancy.
To counteract these episodes, many women suffering depressive symptoms turn to a group of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SSRIs like Lexapro, Paxil, and Prozac, among others, can have positive effects. A study in the medical journal Human Reproduction, however, determined that pregnant SSRI patients face a higher likelihood of complications, birth defects, preterm birth, and miscarriage.
Did you experience physical or emotional pain as a result of your SSRI prescription during pregnancy? Do you suspect that your SSRI medication may have contributed to a negative health outcome related to your pregnancy?
