Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Risks

October 23, 2012

A class of powerful antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) has been on the market for several years. While they’ve helped millions, they’ve also injured thousands. Specifically, when some pregnant women have taken SSRIs like Zoloft, Prozac, or Celexa, their children have been born with brain, heart, lung, and developmental birth defects.

 

One of the most dangerous times for several SSRI medications is during the first trimester of pregnancy. In these early stages of pregnancy, the effects of SSRI drugs can be most powerfully felt in utero. Based on these risks, institutions such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a number of medical professionals have cautioned against the ill effects of SSRI exposure during pregnancy.
