Are the Risks of Prozac Greater Than You Think?

February 28, 2012

For years, drug manufacturers have profitably sold Prozac (fluoxetine) to women who were pregnant or might become pregnant. In some cases, these patients comprehended the risks associated with this potentially dangerous antidepressant, but in others, the warnings were far from clearly understood.


What does the risk profile look like for Prozac? According to one study, neonates who had prolonged in utero exposure to fluoxetine experienced neonatal abstinence syndrome after birth. Their symptoms included tremors, sleep disturbances, and high-pitched crying. Moreover, evidence from other medical experts shows that weaning off of SSRIs like Prozac may be the least disturbing form of suffering. Other children have been born with persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and very serious heart defects.


Has your child suffered as a result of your SSRI prescription? Their symptoms raise not only medical concerns, but legal issues as well.
