How Should You Handle Your Concerns about SSRI Effects?

January 23, 2013

A widely prescribed class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) has caused the tragic injury of thousands of newborn children. And to add insult to injury, many expecting mothers never realized that their prescription to Paxil, Zoloft, or Celexa might cause harm to the child developing inside of them.

 

What kinds of birth defects are associated with maternal SSRI treatments? Effects vary on a case-by-case basis, but the most serious have typically been associated with cardiac, pulmonary, and developmental complications. Sadly, all SSRI risks are not created equally. Recent research suggests that fetal complications are generally more likely to occur in the first and last trimesters, however, many patients don’t realize this.

 

Have your family members’ lives been unexpectedly and significantly changed as a result of your child’s fetal SSRI exposure? If you’re like thousands of other blindsided parents, what you didn’t know about Lexapro or Zoloft did hurt you. Fortunately, you may have recourse for your grievances. Talk to the professionals at the Dallas firm of Fears Nachawati to learn more about your rights and your potential remedies.
