Did Your Zoloft Prescription Injure Your Child?

February 3, 2012

Zoloft (sertraline) is a powerful prescription drug that doctors use to combat depression in their patients. As an antidepressant prescribed to adults, it has been successful.


In the last several years, however, the drawbacks of Zoloft (sertraline) have become increasingly clear. For a large and growing number of families, Zoloft and similar selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants have caused injury to their children. Specifically, as the Food and Drug Administration has warned since 2005, pregnant mothers who take Zoloft while pregnant can transmit this dangerous drug to the child growing inside them.


At birth and in the weeks and months afterwards, the effects of this relatively high in utero exposure to Zoloft (sertraline) become alarmingly evident. Zoloft children demonstrate symptoms that include behavioral disturbances and physical effects such as abdominal, brain, lung, and heart abnormalities. In many cases, these conditions are serious and the source of considerable physical pain, emotional suffering, and financial expense.
