Prozac: The Most Prescribed of Dangerous SSRIs

October 4, 2011

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh concluded in 2005 that every year as many as 80,000 women were prescribed antidepressants, known as Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), and that Prozac (fluoxetine) was the leading seller. Unfortunately for these women, SSRIs in general and Prozac in particular have been found to significantly increase the probability of birth defects in children. Children exposed to Prozac and other SSRIs during the first trimester, for instance, have a 60 percent higher likelihood of developing a heart problem, are twice as likely of having three or more “minor abnormalities,” and have poorer than average neonatal adaptation.
