Have you or a family member been affected by the adverse effects of SSRI anti-depressants? Then you may want to learn more about dangerous side effects and the potential for filing a lawsuit.
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.

Zoloft (Generic: sertraline)
Lexapro (Generic: escitalopram)
Paxil (Generic: paroxetine)
Celexa (Generic: citalopram)
Prozac (Generic: fluoxetine)
