Did Prozac Put My Child at Risk of Heart Defects?

November 15, 2011

Prozac (fluoxetine) may be an effective antidepressant, but recent studies have revealed that this serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) imposes considerable risk upon the unborn children of pregnant women who take Prozac.


The risks of Prozac-induced heart defects are real. One scientific study, for example, found that Prozac increased the risk of infant birth defects by more than 50 percent. And the potential for injury is greatest in the early stages of pregnancy. During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, women taking SSRIs like Prozac elevate the risk of malformation by 40 percent and the risk of heart defects by an astounding 60 percent.


Are you concerned that Prozac (fluoxetine) may have contributed to your child’s birth defects? Findings from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and leading scientific journals suggest that your concerns may be well founded. If you’re ready to find out about the health of your child and the reasons for his or her injury, talk to the dangerous drug experts at Fears Nachawati today.
