Is Zoloft the Right Antidepressant for You?

Zoloft (sertraline) is an effective, safe antidepressant for many Americans. However, for American women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, safety may be a concern you take to heart. In fact, it may be time to ask your physician whether there is a better way to combat your depression.


Studies have found that Zoloft, a member of a class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), may endanger the unborn children of pregnant patients with a number of birth defects, including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN). What’s particularly invidious is that Zoloft and other SSRIs often do their most significant harm before the mother ever realizes that she’s pregnant.


Why does this matter in the eyes of the law? The probability that SSRI-related injuries occur early during pregnancy elevates the importance of effective physician and consumer warnings. Tragically, however, many Zoloft patients feel that they never really understood the risks they were assuming. Ineffective warnings aren’t fair to mothers, their children, or their families.
