Paxil Doubles Heart Defect Risk in Newborns

February 4, 2012

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), several recent studies suggest that women who take Paxil (paroxetine) during the first three months of pregnancy increase the risk that their child is born with heart birth defects by an astonishing 150 to 200 percent. The types of heart defects observed in the research were atrial and ventricular septal defects and ranged in severity from minor to serious, requiring surgery.

 

The risk of injury was so severe that the FDA requested that the drug manufacturer responsible for producing Paxil downgrade Paxil from Pregnancy Category C to Pregnancy Category D.

 

Was your child born with a heart condition that might be related to your Paxil prescription? You’re not alone. Thousands of women have taken Paxil during pregnancy without realizing the effects that this dangerous drug might have on their fetus. Do you want justice for your family and yourself?
