Did you take an or antidepressant/SRRI while pregnant?
Was your child born with birth defects?
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants may cause serious birth defects in infants whose mothers take the drugs while pregnant, especially during the early months of pregnancy. Potential SSRI birth defects include persistent pulmonary hypertension, as well as other congenital heart and lung conditions. SSRI birth defects have an enormous impact on a child’s quality of life, and impact the emotional and financial well-being of the entire family. Families whose children were born with a birth defect may be eligible to file an SSRI birth defect lawsuit if the child’s mother took any of these drugs during pregnancy, including:
- Zoloft (Generic: sertraline)
- Lexapro (Generic: escitalopram)
- Paxil (Generic: paroxetine)
- Celexa (Generic: citalopram)
- Prozac (Generic: fluoxetine)
