Lawsuits for Serious SSRI Birth Defects are Frequent

There are currently so many SSRI birth defect lawsuits that have been filed by families whose infants have been born with these defects that the cases are being consolidated in a massive legal action in the federal court system.

Among the health problems that women claim were caused in their infants because of the use of SSRIs during pregnancy are:

* A life-threatening lung condition known as – Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn
*Club Foot
*Cleft Palate
*Cleft Lip
*Ventricular septal malformation
*Omphalocele
*Tetralogy of Fallot
*Limb deformities
*Genital defects
*Heart defects
*Abnormal intestinal defects
*Hydrocephalus
*Atrial septal defect
*Ventral septal defect

Now, the findings of a new study published in the British Medical Journal show that patients taking SSRIs may be at higher risk of developing an abnormal heart beat than patients who take other medications.

[What they are talking about here is the long QT interval that I have been discussing for years and included much information on this in the 2000 edition of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare.]

Among the birth defects identified in these SSRI lawsuits are nearly every one of the complaints the mothers had listed:

*Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn
*Heart defects
*Ventricular septal malformation
*Atrial septal defect
*Tetralogy of Fallot
*Cleft lip
*Cleft palate
*Club foot
*Omphalocele
*Limb deformities
*Genital defects
*Abnormal intestinal defects
*Hydrocephalus

In the new research linking SSRIs to increased risk of stroke, the findings of the research, which were published in the journal Neurology, the scientists found that the increased risk of stroke occurs most often during the first few weeks of treatment.

I will follow this up with new research just out that will demonstrate serious problems for the mother after pregnancy due to her use of antidepressants.
