Did Prozac Cause Your Newborn’s Birth Defects?

January 31, 2012

Has your newborn suffered from jitteriness, shallow breathing, low body temperature, diminished reaction to pain or poor muscle tone? Did you take Prozac or another antidepressant – commonly known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) – during your third trimester or while your newborn was breastfeeding? If the answer to these questions is yes, you should talk to your child’s pediatrician and to the attorneys at Fears Nachawati who specialize in dangerous drug injuries.

 

Unfortunately, for nearly a decade several large pharmaceutical companies have manufactured SSRIs like Prozac (fluoxetine) and distributed them to the unsuspecting public without properly testing their product or warning physicians and consumers. For some families, this decision has been catastrophic, as their newborns have suffered from a cascade of illnesses and potentially fatal birth defects.

 

Worried that Prozac may have contributed to your child’s birth defects? Don’t suffer in silence; don’t worry alone. Talk to our professionals today to find out how you should go about answering your questions – and what you should do if you don’t like the answers you receive.
