Studies Find Zoloft Dangerous for Pregnant Mothers

September 23, 2011

Did you know that a 2005 Danish study of 500,000 children found that Zoloft (Sertraline) significantly increased the risk of birth defects, including heart abnormalities. These findings were further confirmed by a study in the Archives of General Psychiatry that fetuses exposed to Zoloft in the first trimester are four times more likely to develop autism than those not exposed to Zoloft and similar antidepressant medications.

 

Many women who are pregnant or may become pregnant don’t realize the risk they run when they continue to take Zoloft during their pregnancy. Their antidepressant medication is prescribed to fight against mental disorders like depression, bulimia, OCD, anxiety, and PTSD, but it may actually be introducing potentially dangerous chemicals into their womb.

 

Has your child been injured as a result of his or her exposure to Zoloft? You should contact our dangerous drug experts immediately. For your free consultation, call us at 1.866.545.8364 or email mn@fnlawfirm.com. We’re ready to fight for you.
