The First Trimester: The Danger Zone for Paxil Patients

September 24, 2011

You may not know it, but if you’re a female, Paxil (paroxetine) patient, you run the risk of exposing your child to birth defects because of your prescription medication. According to a study by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Paxil increases the risk of birth defects, particularly heart defects, for children whose mothers take the drug during the first trimester of pregnancy. Perhaps the greatest risk with Paxil is that expecting mothers take the medication – and expose their unborn child to injury – before they even realize they’re pregnant.

 

Has this happened to you or a loved one? For years, the FDA has advised health care professionals, including gynecologists, to discuss the potential risk of birth defects with patients taking Paxil. Did your doctor give you the knowledge you needed to make an informed decision for you and your family?

 

Victims of Paxil (paroxetine) who have been injured deserve their day in court. Fortunately, the team of expert attorneys at Fears Nachawati is taking the steps necessary to make that happen. If you or a loved one has a child born with Paxil-induced birth defects, talk to us today. The consultation is free, and the conversation could change your family’s life.
