The Paxil Danger Zone: Risks Higher During First Trimester

January 28, 2012

The health risks associated with Paxil (paroxetine) are not constant. For pregnant women, the risk that their Paxil prescription contributes to their fetus’s development of a birth defect are notably higher during the first trimester. In fact, recent medical studies reveal that Paxil patients in their first three months of pregnancy are between 150 and 200 percent more likely to give birth to a child with a heart defect than non-Paxil patients.

 

The medical risks associated with Paxil (paroxetine) aren’t new news. However, the legal consequences are changing. In 2009, a jury awarded a Paxil family between 2 and 3 million dollars in compensation for the harm that the drug manufacturer imposed upon their child. As of mid-2010, the maker of Paxil faced more than 800 lawsuits and roughly $1,000,000,000 in product liability claims.
