Birth Defects Linked To SSRI Drugs

 

Evidence of Birth Defects from Paxil, Zoloft and

 other SSRIs Continues to Mount Lawsuits

 

     

Birth defects from the SSRI antidepressants, including Paxil, Zoloft and others are being further documented and prosecuted. 

Recently a former executive of GlaxoSmithKline, testified that the company admited that its SSRI, Paxil was the likely cause of a birth defect reported in 2001 and to the company. 

Bloomberg reported:

 

Sept. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Officials of GlaxoSmithKline Plc, the U.K.'s largest drugmaker, said in 2001 that a birth defect in the fetus of a woman taking its Paxil antidepressant likely was linked to the drug, according to court testimony.


After analyzing a 2001 e-mail from a Paxil user who aborted her fetus because it had a heart defect, Glaxo officials noted in company files they were "almost certain" the drug was related to the problem, Jane Nieman, a former Glaxo drug-safety executive, told a Pennsylvania jury.


"I don't know who made that assessment, but it's there," Nieman testified in a videotaped deposition played yesterday for jurors. Nieman's testimony came in the trial of another Paxil user's lawsuit over birth defects suffered by her now 3-year-old son.


The state-court trial in Philadelphia is the first of more than 600 cases alleging Glaxo knew Paxil caused birth defects and hid those risks to increase profits. The drug, approved for U.S. use in 1992, generated about $942 million in sales last year, 2.1 percent of Glaxo's total revenue.


The family of Lyam Kilker claims Glaxo withheld information from consumers and regulators about the risk of birth defects and failed to properly test Paxil. Lyam's mother, Michelle David, blames Paxil for causing her son's life-threatening heart defects.

Separately, patient advocacy law firms are increasingly providing information via the internet and television advertisements to families who may have children suffering from birth defects from in-utero exposure to an SSRI.  Here is one website with extensive information about the potential birth defects.  The Zoloft Center Site states in part:

Researchers in the United States and Europe have linked SSRI drugs like Zoloft to serious birth defects like skull deformities, defects of the brain and spine, heart defects, lung defects, abdominal defects, club foot and facial cleft deformities.

In many cases, scientists found that SSRI drugs such as Zoloft increased the risk of severe birth defects by as much as 600%.


Unfortunately, Zoloft has been taken by hundreds of millions of people and the makers of the drug gave no warning about the serious health risks like Zoloft birth defects. They have continued to sell it to patients around the world earning billions of dollars per year.

If you took Zoloft and have given birth to a child with birth defects, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. The time to recover for your child's condition is limited.
