Pharmaceutical Birth Defect Lawyer: Antidepressants

Various antidepressant drugs have been linked to birth defects in children born to mothers taking the drugs during pregnancy. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor drugs (SSRI drugs), and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRI drugs) have both been connected to birth defects. These drugs, which are usually used treat anxiety, depression and personality disorders have been linked to causing numerous types of birth defects in children.

Drug Types Linked to Birth DefectsAmong the antidepressant drugs linked to birth defects are: Zoloft, Prozac, Pristiq, Xanax, Wellbutrin, Effexor, Paxil, Celexa, Cymbalta, and Lexapro.  The risk of birth defects for babies of mothers who take these drugs during pregnancy are high.
