Serious Injuries from Antidepressant Drugs

Paxil, Zoloft and other SSRI anti depressants – Paxil@(paroxetine) is an anti-depressant manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. Recently, Public Health Advisories have been issued for Paxil@ regarding an increased risk of heart birth defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), omphalocele (an abnormality in newborns in which the infant’s intestine or other abdominal organs protrude from the navel) or craniosynostosis (connections between sutures-skull bones prematurely close during the first year of life, which causes an abnormally shaped skull) in children born to mothers exposed to Paxil@. We are also looking into other antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRls, which include the brand-name drugs Zoloft, Lexapro and Prozac, which also are linked to birth defects including heart and lung defects.

SSRI Antidepressant Drugs product liability lawyers are presently investigating claims involving the following potentially dangerous Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs):

  • Prozac (fluoxetine)
  • Paxil (parozetine)
  • Zoloft (sertraline)
  • Luvox (fluvoxamine)
  • Celexa (citalopram)
  • Sarafem (fluoxetine)
  • Lexapro (escitalopram)

SSRI’s claim include the possibility of:

  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension in Newborns
  • Heart defects
  • Craniosyntosis
  • Omphalocele
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Limb defects
  • Club foot
  • Transposition of the great arteries
