Did You Discuss Zoloft’s Possible Effect on Your Pregnancy with Your Physician?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rendered a public health advisory warning recently in which it made absolutely clear that patients and physicians should discuss the potential effects of Zoloft and similar antidepressant SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) during pregnancy. In its advisory, the FDA specifically cited studies which identified the very real risk that newborns exposed to Zoloft and other SSRIs might develop persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and other birth defects.
The warnings from the FDA and respected medical journals about Zoloft and other SSRIs have been clear. Despite this, some physicians have failed in their duty to counsel their patients. Additionally, some experts question whether drug manufacturers appropriately responded to the PPHN risk, pointing to insufficiently informative package labels.
