Did an SSRI Hurt Your Newborn?

November 12, 2012

In the last several years, thousands of parents have come to realize that a connection may exist between their newborn’s birth defects and his or her mother’s prescription antidepressant. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, known as SSRIs, are a class of drug that may help a mother combat depression, but could also cause potentially severe developmental complications for the child.

 

Did you know that neonatal exposure to the active ingredients in SSRIs may be transferred via the umbilical cord or breast milk? The risk of harm is sufficiently great that the American Association of Pediatric has warned future parents and health care professionals about the possible injury to in utero children.

 

The attorneys at the law firm of Fears Nachawati know how to protect your interests if your family has been hurt by an SSRI like Prozac or Zoloft. With years of experience and dedicated expertise, we’re prepared to help you. For a free consultation, call us today at 1.866.545.8364 or email mn@fnlawfirm.com. We’re ready to advise you!
