Paxil® has been linked to Birth Defects in Children when the mother took Paxil® during pregnancy.
Paxil® Birth Defect Lawsuits
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration ("FDA") has issued advisories regarding the dangers of taking Paxil during pregnancy, and has determined that infants born to mothers taking Paxil during pregnancy have an increased risk of pulmonary hypertension and cardiac defects.
The use of Paxil® during the first trimester of pregnancy may increase the risk of your child developing: Congenital Heart Defects, Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), Brain & Spinal Cord Defects, Abdominal Birth Defects, and/or Cranial Birth Defects.
Recent litigation has held these drug companies accountable for their failure to warn of these risks. If you or a loved one has taken Paxil and given birth to a child with a birth defect, you may be entitled to compensation.
Paxil®, an antidepressant manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, is generally prescribed to treat major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social phobia/social anxiety disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
