Dangerous SSRI Risks?

Zoloft is a SSRI antidepressent medication brought to market by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Similar to Paxil, Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor medication (SSRI) intended for use as an anti-depressant. A number of lawsuits have been filed alleging zoloft birth defects since its release when taken while pregnant. Following a series of studies, Zoloft has been linked to a number of dangerous side effects that the manufacturers failed to provide sufficient information to avoid usage.

The drug has been shown to be especially dangerous to pregnant women, the side effects being linked by an 2006 FDA study showing an increased potential risk to takers of Zoloft of pulmonary hypertension in their newborns. Later, a 2007 study linked taking Zoloft to abnormal craniofacial development, brain defects, and gastrointestinal abnormality in newborns.

The 2007 studies have been followed by a significant 2009 clinical study published by the British Medical Journal linking Zoloft and other SSRI antidepressant medications to an increased risk of heart defects when taken during the mother's pregnancy during the first trimester. This harmful side effect of taking Zoloft is especially insidious as the first trimester is often the period where a mother has not yet aware of their pregnancy.

Ongoing claims are being reviewed by the leading Zoloft attorneys and studies are being performed on the medication exploring further complications that arise from taking the drug. Potential further Zoloft birth defects include:

  • Omphalocele
  • Spina Bifida
  • Limb Defects
  • Club Foot
  • Cleft Mitral Valve
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Ventrical Septal Defect (VSD)
  • Atrial Septal Defect
  • Tetralology of the Fallot
  • Transposition of the Great Arteries
  • Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
  • Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus


It is important to act quickly when filing a Zoloft compensation lawsuit as regulations limit the amount of time suffers of side effects have to report a claim and pursue your legal rights.
