Is PPHN Connected to Prozac?

Researchers writing in the New England Journal of Medicine stunned the medical community several years ago when they revealed that not only was Prozac (fluoxetine) linked to persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), but that women who took Prozac during pregnancy were six times more likely to give birth to a child suffering from PPHN.


As you may know, PPHN isn’t just a serious health condition. It’s a potentially fatal one. In fact, as many as twenty percent of PPHN newborns die and many more experience painful, non-fatal symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, and fatigue.


Was your prescription antidepressant responsible for your child’s PPHN? This is a challenging empirical and legal question, but in many cases, it’s worth finding out the answer.
