Prozac Birth Defects More Numerous Than You Might Think

December 27, 2011

Prozac (fluoxetine) is a dangerous drug. While drug manufacturers may be right to point the benefits of Prozac and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Lexapro and Celexa, the reality is that the risk of neonatal injury during the first and last trimesters is very, very real.

 

Some parents think that persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) is the only birth defect associated with Prozac (fluoxetine). While it’s true that PPHN is a prominent birth defect caused by Prozac, the medical community points to a wide variety of other birth defects – including atrial sepal defects, valve problems, tricuspid atresia, heart murmur, cranial skull and abdominal wall defects, club foot, and spina bifida – related to Prozac.

 

Has your child suffered one of these tragic, costly birth defects? If you’ve been a Prozac patients, the likelihood is greater than you might think.
