Parents Looks for Justice Following SSRI Surgery

Every year, thousands of parents confront a reality they never anticipated: a child who suffered a birth defect as the result of his or her mother’s prescription antidepressant. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may succeed at holding an expecting woman’s depression in check, but in rare instances, they also cause serious and potentially fatal birth defects, including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN).


PPHN and other SSRI-related birth defects aren’t just medical events. They’re legal events, too. Depending on what you or your spouse were told when you were prescribed your Lexapro, Zoloft, Paxil, or other SSRI, you may have a viable cause of action against the manufacturer and marketer of this powerful drug.
