Prozac Birth Defect? Our Lawyers can Help

If you were taking Prozac during your pregnancy and your baby was born with a defect, you must contact the Prozac birth defects lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. about the possibility of gaining compensation for what you and your baby have suffered.

It has been revealed through a number of cases that Prozac can be harmful to your unborn child and that you really should seek both medical advice and legal action in the event of giving birth to a child with birth defects of any kind.

What is Prozac?
Prozac is a kind of antidepressant and was the first antidepressant in a line of drugs called selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors or SSRIs.

Prozac was approved for public us in 1986, but since that time it has been revealed that Prozac can cause birth defects in new born babies when women take the drug during pregnancy.

Prozac is not only used to treat serious depressive disorders. It is also used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders and panic attacks. It is widely used to treat both adults and children over eight years old as well as and adolescents and this is why the fears behind the safety of the drug are so great.

Approximately 54 million people in 90 countries use Prozac and this means that a huge number of new born babies are at risk every single day from the dangerous side-effects associated with taking the drug.

What kind of dangerous side-effects can Prozac have on the health of your new born baby?
Every single Prozac birth defect case will be different to any other. Therefore, if your new born baby is suffering from other symptoms other than those indicated below, and you are concerned that the problems relate to the Prozac that you took during your pregnancy, it is still important consult a professional medic without delay.

However, in general, the most common birth defect found in new born babies and linked to Prozac is persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN).

PPHN is a serious condition. It is potentially life-threatening and occurs in babies within the first few days after birth.

New born babies develop PPHN because their lungs have not assumed the responsibility of providing sufficient oxygen in the blood to help the baby function and develop properly. This situation causes the babies’ organs and tissue of their bodies to become distressed and as a result the babies need intensive medical care.

Without proper medical care, babies with PPHN can become very ill and be at risk of dying, which is why you need to report what has happened to your baby as a result of taking Prozac during pregnancy to the Prozac birth defect lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. without delay.

Apart from PPHN, other health issues can develop in your new born baby from taking Prozac during pregnancy, including the following:

1. an increased risk of congenital malformations, such as cleft lip
2. cleft palate
3. clubfoot
4. dangerous heart defects, including left outflow tract heart defects

Prozac birth defects are a serious matter and the Prozac birth defect attorneys who work for Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are here to assist you in any way possible at any time.
