Learn the Specific Birth Defects Associated with Zoloft Use

Jeff Nadrich is a national Zoloft attorney based in Los Angeles California, with more than 25 years of experience successfully defending personal injury clients. If you or someone you love has suffered Zoloft complications, call us today at 1-800-718-4658. You may be entitled to compensation.

The judge who will preside over the Zoloft multidistrict litigation recently announced that there are now enough cases amassed in federal court to begin precedential rulings. As of this writing, there are 330 Zoloft birth defects lawsuits pending, and bellwether trials are set to begin in 2014. Each of these lawsuits involves children who have suffered birth defects after the mother took Zoloft during pregnancy. The drug is believed—based on comprehensive data and research—to have contributed to these birth defects.

There has been a lot of talk about the link between Zoloft and birth defects, but very little discussion about the specific types of defects that may present themselves. Here are just some of the common birth defects associated with Zoloft use, and just some of the reasons why you may want to speak to your doctor about possible alternatives if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

Anal Atresia – the anus is not present, or in the wrong place

Autism – a common developmental disorder characterized by complex social and behavioral challenges

Cleft Lip or Cleft Palate – a congenital fissure along the lip or roof of the mouth

Clubbed Foot – a congenital deformity of the foot

Delayed Development – this can manifest itself in a number of ways

Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension – a rare lung disorder that disrupts the flow of oxygen

Gastrochisis – a congential defect impacting the abdominal wall

Heart Defects – such as septal defects, heart valve abnormalities and coarction of the aorta

Pulmonary atresia – a congenital malformation of the pulmonary valve

Pulmonary stenosis – an obstruction that impacts the flow from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery

Spina Bifida – a malformation of the spine

And sadly, these are just some of the possible effects.
