Did Prozac Cause Your Child’s Heart Defects?
Children born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) such as a septal or cyanotic defect, often face a fight for their lives. Although it is true that some cases don’t require any treatment at all, in others if the child does not die immediately after birth, they must deal with surgical procedures or a lifetime of medication.
Heart defects in children are tragic. Unfortunately, in some cases, they aren’t the result of mere happenstance or bad luck. Dangerous drugs, such as Prozac (fluoxetine), can significantly increase the possibility that a child is born with heart-related medical conditions.
Did you take Prozac (fluoxetine) during your pregnancy? You may not have known it at the time, but your prescription medication may have contributed to your child’s injuries. In many cases, responsibility for the dangers of Prozac and similar antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) lies with the drug manufacturer. That may be the case for you and your family, too. To to learn about your legal options, contact the professionals at Fears Nachawati.
