Did Prozac Cause Your Child’s PPHN?
Prozac (fluoxetine), a widely distributed and consumed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), is designed to fight depression. Ironically, given its effect on prenatal fetuses, it has the risk of giving patients and families’ reason to be depressed.
According to medical studies and warnings by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Prozac significantly increases the likelihood – by as much as 600 percent – that women who take an SSRI like Prozac during the second half of their pregnancy give birth to a child suffering from persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN). Tragically, hundreds of mothers – and their families – have experienced the ill effects of SSRIs. In the years ahead, many more unfortunate cases of PPHN are almost certain to develop.
The lawyers at Fears Nachawati fight for families injured by SSRIs. Pulmonary persistent hypertension is more than a minor birth defect: it’s a life-threatening ailment that requires surgery within the first several weeks of life.
