Craniosynostosis is a birth defect that occurs when at least one bone suture in the skull fuses prematurely, preventing the brain and head from growing normally. Studies show that of women using the antidepressant Zoloft during pregnancy face an increased risk of having a child with craniosynostosis or other cranial birth defects.
Craniosynostosis can cause babies to have a misshapen head and increased intracranial pressure that often requires surgery to correct. If left untreated, craniosynostosis could lead to more severe issues such as blindness, seizures, and developmental delays.
Studies have also linked Zoloft use during pregnancy to heart birth defects and abdominal birth defects including persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), hypoplastic left heart syndrome and omphalocele.
