Is Zoloft Responsible for Your Child’s Birth Defects?

Tragically, thousands of American families are facing this difficult, dispiriting and discouraging issue. For more than five years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and prominent members of the medical community have warned physicians and patients that Zoloft (sertraline) can cause serious health consequences when taken during pregnancy, including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and possibly fatal cardiac ailments.


Zoloft can’t be that bad, right? Think again. After the 20th week of pregnancy, infants exposed to Zoloft (sertraline) and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are six times more likely to develop PPHN and other birth defects. If you took Zoloft during your pregnancy, your child’s birth defects may be related to your prescription.
