SSRI Antidepressants & Birth Defects

You Need a Seasoned Nationwide Dangerous Drug Lawyer

The last thing an expectant mother wants is to inadvertently harm her unborn child by taking a medication with poorly understood or inadequately disclosed side effects. Unfortunately, children born to mothers who used selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressants may have an increased risk of heart wall defects and craniosynostosis, -a condition where the joints in a baby's skull between the bones close too soon, before the brain is completely formed.

Forms of Birth Defects & Neurological Effects Related to SSRIs

  • Autism
  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
  • Heart defects (including septal defects)
  • Clef palate / lip
  • Anencephaly
  • Respiratory distress / trouble breathing
