Sometimes good things can bring about unintentional, negative consequences. Unfortunately, that is the case with the popular anti-depressant Sertraline (the generic term for Zoloft), which has been found to cause numerous types of birth defects.
In 2007, Dr. Carol Louik did a study at Boston University, which concluded that Sertraline caused prenatal cardiac defects to double. She also found that it grew the risk of an abdominal wall defect called Omphalocele six fold. Also, in 2009, the Pederson Study found that cardiac malformations doubled and cardiac septal defects effectively tripled when SSRIs like Sertraline were present during pregnancy.
Furthermore, the Food and Drug Administration published a report that said if you take Sertraline while pregnant, your unborn child runs a heightened risk of developing significant lung and heart problems. Other debilitating issues have also been linked to Sertraline/ Zoloft use during pregnancy as well.
In some cases, oversights happen and women aren’t informed about the risks that come with Sertraline and Zoloft use during pregnancy. If you have taken either of these drugs and gave birth to a child with defects, we encourage you to fill out the form at the top right to learn more about Sertraline litigation. We will help determine whether you and your child are entitled to compensation for medical expenses and suffering through a lawsuit.
These are some of the different birth defects linked to Sertraline:
Anal Atresia (complete or partially closed anus)
Atrial Septal Defect (a hole in between the top two heart chambers)
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Cleft Lip/ Palate (hair lip)
Craniosynostosis (misshaped shaped skull)
Limb Reduction Defects
Neural-tube Defects (in the brain and spine)
Omphalocele (abdominal wall defect)
Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension
Ventricular Septal Defect
If you took Sertraline or Zoloft during pregnancy and your baby developed any of these birth defects, we will help you determine whether you are eligible to be compensated for your medical expenses, along with pain and suffering through a lawsuit.
