Corpus Christi Drug Injury Attorneys, Serving Nueces County
It is the duty of drug companies, like Paxil maker GlaxoSmithKline, to
immediately and adequately warn consumers about the dangers potentially
associated with their medications, especially when drug use in pregnancy
may cause serious harm to an unborn child. Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical
companies fail to fulfill this obligation, leaving consumers, particularly
pregnant women, exposed to and unaware of the hazards threatening their
health and the well-being of their child.
If you took Paxil while pregnant and your child was born with a serious
birth defect, contact an experienced drug injury attorney today, as your
child may be entitled to lifetime care and damages.

As more and more Americans are diagnosed with depression and other mood
disorders, prescriptions for the antidepressant Paxil are on the rise
in the United States. Paxil (paroxetine) belongs to a class of drugs called
SSRI antidepressants, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which
work to relieve depression and improve certain mood disorders like obsessive-compulsive
disorder, social anxiety disorder, and major panic disorder. Paxil was
initially approved by the FDA in 1992 and has become one of the most commonly
prescribed antidepressants on the market.
Paxil Side Effects & Birth Defects
Recent Paxil warnings issued by the FDA have raised serious concerns about
the safety of the antidepressant drug, especially in treating pregnant women.
According to mounting evidence, women who take Paxil while pregnant may
have a significantly increased risk of giving birth to children with major
birth defects, including:
- Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN)
- Neural tube birth defects
- Heart defects
- Cleft lip
- Cleft palate
- Limb defects
- Anal atresia
