Should I Take Prozac During Pregnancy?

Based on recent studies and investigations, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) advises that women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should make the decision whether to take Prozac on an “individual basis.” This means that you and your doctor should work in consultation with one another, considering all of the risks of Prozac, including the potential for life-altering and even fatal birth defects for your child.


Did your doctor address whether you should continue taking Prozac during your pregnancy? If not, then the birth defects from which your child may now suffer may be the result of not only a dangerous drug, but also dangerously insufficient medical advice. Prozac and other antidepressants have been shown to increase the risk of miscarriage, breathing problems, and a variety of other defects, including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHT).


If your child suffers from a birth defect and you took an antidepressant during your pregnancy, the two may be related.
