Zoloft Class Actions
Parents whose children were born with heart defects or other birth defects caused by the use of Zoloft during pregnancy may be eligible to file a class action lawsuit and receive compensation for their injuries. Discussing your case with an experienced attorney is the first step in finding out if you qualify for a Zoloft class action involving birth defects.
Scientists have found that the use of Zoloft while pregnant can increase the dangers of birth defects, regardless of whether the antidepressant is used early or near the end of pregnancy. Pregnant women taking Zoloft may give birth to a child with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), atrial or ventral septal defects, hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), ventricular outflow defects, coarctation of the aorta, transposition of the great arteries or other birth defects.
The Food and Drug Administration released a warning about the link between Zoloft and birth defects. However, the agency has not announced any plans to issue a Zoloft recall due to the heart defects and other side effects associated with the use of the drug during pregnancy.
