Paxil’s Profits & Problems

March 3, 2012

Paxil (paroxetine), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant manufactured by pharmaceudical giant GlaxoSmithKlein, is responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in GSK revenue and millions in profits. Tragically, this dangerous drug is also responsible for hundreds of neonatal birth defects.

 

At present, more than 500 families have filed lawsuits in which they allege that Paxil and other, similar SSRIs have significantly contributed to the heart, lung, brain, or behavioral birth defects which their children have suffered. Of the many conditions associated with Paxil, the one that is particularly shocking is persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), a complication the risk of which SSRIs have been shown to meaningfully elevate.
