For over two decades, the prescription drug Zoloft has been prescribed by physicians to treat patients suffering from depression. Unfortunately, dangerous side effects have also been linked to its use. One such side effect impacts pregnant women. When this drug is used by pregnant women, a serious risk of birth defects exists. This is despite the fact that the drug’s manufacturer is accused of promoting the use of the drug in pregnant women while knowing that the risk of birth defects existed.

6 Birth Defects Linked to Use of the Drug Zoloft

What are some types of birth defects that may result from the use of Zoloft by pregnant women? The following are six examples:

  1. Holes in the heart
  2. Cleft palate
  3. Club feet
  4. Spina bifida
  5. Skull defects
  6. Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn

Tragically, some of these birth defects may ultimately prove to be fatal. For children who do survive, there may be a need for ongoing medical treatment and rehabilitation lasting well into the future, even into adulthood. The result of the link between Zoloft use and these birth defects is that many patients have now filed lawsuits against Pfizer, the drug’s manufacturer.

If you were injured as a result of taking Zoloft, it is important to seek legal guidance in order to protect your legal rights. You may be entitled to compensation for your suffering and losses. We encourage you to contact us today for a consultation at 888-526-7616.
