Zoloft Litigation - Birth Defects - SSRI - Autism
There have been many claims regarding the side-effects of Zoloft such as suicide ideation. However, the most recent Zoloft litigation involves Autism and heart defects in babies after the use of the drug by their pregnant mothers.
This Zoloft litigation focuses on heart defects in babies including atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, Tetralogy of fallot, hypoplastic left heart syndrome, transposition of the great arteries (TGA or TOGA), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR), double outlet right ventricle (DORV), and coarctation of the aorta (CoA)
Zoloft is a type of antidepressant within the class of drugs know as Selective Sarotonin Reuptake Inhibitors "SSRI" all of which are suspected of causing serious birth defects. In addition to these serious heart birth defects, Zoloft is believed to cause the condition craniosynostosis and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Some of the most common SSRI drugs include:
- Celexa (generic name citalopram)
- Lexapro (generic name escitalopram)
- Prozac & Sarafem (generic name fluoxetine)
