Club Foot & Prozac: The Link You Didn’t Suspect

April 24, 2012

Prozac (fluoxetine) isn’t just a commonly prescribed antidepressant. It’s also a commonly misunderstood source of risk for fetuses and neonates. In fact, recent medical research has shown that pregnant women who take Prozac during pregnancy elevate the probability that their child is born with a potentially serious birth defect.

 

The birth defects associated with Prozac are many, but one of the most physically painful and emotionally upsetting is club foot. A condition in which one or both of the child’s feet are turned inward, club foot is often resolved only through surgery. The good news, however, is that most instances of club foot can be cured. Tragically, that’s not always the case with Prozac-related birth defects.
