Children of women who used the antidepressant Zoloft during pregnancy face an increased risk of serious heart defects or other birth defects. The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about the dangers of Zoloft, citing studies which helped to uncover the potentially deadly side effects associated with the antidepressant.
According to multiple studies, these Zoloft dangers may be present regardless of when the drug was taken during pregnancy. According to two studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine, women are significantly more likely to give birth to a child with heart defects or other birth defects regardless of whether they used Zoloft during the first trimester or after the 20th week of pregnancy.
Despite the growing evidence of the dangers of using Zoloft during pregnancy, the FDA has not announced any plans to issue a Zoloft recall or to strengthen the existing warning labels on the drug. However, many women have taken action by contacting a Zoloft attorney to find out more information about whether they can filed a lawsuits over the birth defects suffered by their child.
