Paxil Lawsuits

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.

Paxil Uses

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
  • Omphalocele
  • Craniosynostosis
