New Study Further Solidifies Link between Zoloft and Birth Defects

A new study in the medical journal Human Reproduction further reinforces the claims of countless patients regarding the antidepressant Zoloft. We previously commented on the study on this blog shortly after its release, but it appears to be generating even more attention, as more and more media outlets are picking up the story. Perhaps all of the media attention will help to educate women who are currently unaware of the dangers associated with Zoloft and other SSRIs.

To review, drug maker Pfizer has faced numerous lawsuits from plaintiffs alleging that birth defects resulted from Zoloft use, but Pfizer has remained defiant. At Nadrich & Cohen LLP, we have been fighting on behalf of Zoloft users in California and across the nation, and have won recoveries from Pfizer and other leading drug manufacturers.  If you or someone you love has been affected, call us today at 1-800-718-4658 for a free consultation.

Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), commonly used by individuals suffering from a variety of psychological disorders including depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and general anxiety disorder. The Human Reproduction study found that Zoloft and similar SSRI drugs can create complications for women trying to conceive while on fertility treatments. The study also confirms that Zoloft can cause severe side effects in pregnant women, and can lead to birth defects.

The study looked at numerous earlier studies that examined the effects of Zoloft and other SSRIs on women battling both depression and fertility issues. Women who used SSRIs were statistically more likely to experience miscarriages, premature birth, and other birth-related complications. Additionally, women undergoing fertility treatments were less likely to conceive while taking drugs like Zoloft, Paxil, and Celexa.

The study found that other forms of treatment could address depression just as effectively without presenting the dangerous side effects of Zoloft. For instance, physical exercise and cognitive-behavioral therapy significantly decreased depress symptoms in the patients studied, as did counseling. If you are pregnant, or are trying to become pregnant, and you take Zoloft to treat depression, speak with your doctor about possible alternatives.
