Prozac has been linked to Birth Defects in Children when the mother took Prozac during pregnancy.
Prozac Birth Defect Lawsuits.
Infants born to mothers taking Prozac during the last half of pregnancy have an increased risk of birth defects. The use of Prozac during the second or third trimesters of pregnancy may increase the risk of your child developing Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN). Infants born with PPHN have abnormal blood flow through the heart and lungs, and do not get enough oxygen to their bodies.
Recent litigation has held drug companies accountable for their failure to warn of these risks. If you or a loved one has taken Prozac and given birth to a child with a birth defect, you may be entitled to compensation.
Prozac (Fluoxotine) is an antidepressant manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company, of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class.
