According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mothers taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as the popular drug Zoloft, among others, may have unknowingly put their babies at risk of rare congenital heart, pulmonary hypertension, and lung conditions. SSRI litigation claims of congenital defects are now being investigated by a growing number of lawyers across the nation.
The FDA has declined to directly declare a link, stating conflicting studies, since the 2006 health advisory issued that was based on a single published study. However, product liability law firms across the nation are investigating victim claims from families affected who feel there may be a direct causal link.

Noone mother would knowingly put their child's health at risk. Expecting is a joyous time, when a healthy new member of the family is on its way. Carrying the child for 9 months, and fighting to do everything right to take care of the life within you -- manufacturers may have failed to warn of the dangerous side effect risks for congenital defects in the case you became pregnant.
Let's be clear though, a prozac lawsuit for example won't reverse the trauma your infant suffered.
A successful SSRI antidepressant lawsuit is about more than just financial recovery, it's also about holding the truly responsible accountable.
While physicians typically try to limit any prescription medications during such a delicate period, there are cases where the depression is so severe as to force a doctor into considering it despite possible risks to the baby. More commonly, you may have been taking the SSRIs unaware you had become pregnant, without knowledge of the risks to a baby you didn't know you carry.
In cases where the depression is so severe that it impacts the everyday functioning of the expectant mother or if thoughts of suicide are present, a doctor could prescribe an antidepressant as an emergency measure. Your SSRI lawyer will help go over the particulars of your case in-depth and help you determine where liability fall under the law.
Here is a list of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI's) that may increase risks for infant health defects:
- Aropax (Generic: Paroxetine)
- Effexor (Generic: Venlafaxine)
- Fevarin (Generic: Fluvoxamine)
