Are Your Child’s Heart Defects Related to Prenatal Prozac Exposure?
Medical research has found that Prozac (fluoxetine) patients who continue their treatments during pregnancy may inadvertently elevate their child’s probably of being born with serious cardiac birth defects or a pulmonary condition known as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN). While individual risk may be relatively small, the reality is that as many as 80,000 pregnant women take Prozac in a given year, thus spreading the risk of a relatively large population.
Tragically, the period of greatest risk is during the first trimester of pregnancy. This is precisely the time when many women do not realize their pregnant or have not learned about the pregnancy-related risks of this powerful antidepressant.
