The Risks of Paxil

September 1, 2011

Are you aware of the medical risks of Paxil (Paroxetine) for pregnant women? Many patients don’t realize that their anti-depression medication can have dangerous, life-altering consequences for their children.

 

Paxil (Paroxetine) is an antidepressant that along with a number of similar drugs is referred to as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Some SSRI drugs, including Paxil, can cause heart defects and serious lung problems in newborn children. Other SSRI birth defects include spina bifida, tetralogy of fallout (TOF), ventrical septal defects (VSD) and club foot. In fact, one study found that women who took Paxil and other SSRIs during their third trimester were six times more likely to deliver babies born with primary pulmonary hypertension (PPHN).

 

If your child has suffered a birth defect as a result of your Paxil (Paroxetine) prescription, you need our help. Our expert legal counsel can help you understand your rights – and design a legal strategy capable of bringing justice to you, your family, and your child.
