Autism Caused by Antidepressant Drugs
Was your baby born with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? Did you take SSRI Antidepressants in the year prior to your baby's birth? You should know that recent scientific studies have shown a connection between certain antidepressant use by women and autism in their babies.
The new study published by the Archives of General Psychiatry and reported by TIME Magazine involved research on more than 1,800 children. It found that women who used the drugs in the year prior to giving birth were twice as likely to have children burdened with autism. Those women who used the SSRI drugs in the first trimester of pregnancy were four times as likely to have babies with ASD.
If your baby was born with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and you used an antidepressant before giving birth (even before you were pregnant), you should immediately seek the advice of a board certified personal injury trial lawyer to determine if you and your baby are entitled to compensation.
