Find a Lawyer on Zoloft Birth Defects

There are a number of reasons why someone may choose to keep taking an antidepressant while pregnant. The mental health of the mother may be just as important in delivering a healthy baby as the baby’s health.

As a doctor or psychiatrist, there are times when prescribing a patient to continue taking antidepressants may be the safest method of getting through the pregnancy. Of course, the decision to keep taking an antidepressant is not going to be a decision that will be taken lightly and it is likely to have come after much discussion by the doctor and the pregnant woman.

However, what happens if someone took an antidepressant, such as Zoloft, while they were pregnant without realizing the risks or being at all aware of the side effects? Or what happens if you do go into the decision carefully with your doctor but they were unaware of the serious and potentially deadly risks to the unborn baby because of a lack of disclosure by the drug manufacturer or a lack of proper research before releasing the antidepressant on the market?

Any of these situations may have occurred if you have suddenly discovered that your unborn baby has birth defects or heart problems or your baby has been born with any of the serious side effects that have now been associated with Zoloft if taken while pregnant. If the effects that Zoloft could have on your baby are coming as a complete shock to you then you need to contact a Zoloft birth lawyer.

With Zoloft, the risk of birth defects of real. Here are just some of the side effects that have been reported when Zoloft was taken while pregnant:

Zoloft was approved by the FDA in 1991.
