Paxil Linked to Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Defects

January 14, 2012

Many Americans associate the drug Paxil (paroxetine) with depression. They’re right to do so: Paxil is a widely prescribed and generally effective antidepression medication.

 

Tragically, a growing number of Americans are also learning to associated Paxil (paroxetine) with severe, sometimes fatal birth defects such as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and a rare heart condition known as right ventricular outflow tract defects. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has long warned of the risks of PPHN, it wasn’t until last summer that medical researchers, writing in for the medical research publication Obstetrics & Gynecology, linked Paxil with this serious heart condition in newborns.
