Did Zoloft Contribute My Child’s Omphalocele?

February 10, 2012

Omaphalocele is painful for the child and heart wrenching for parents. In the case of a child born with ompahalocele, the infant’s intestines and liver remain outside of the abdomen in a sac because of defective development of the child’s abdominal wall.


Does Zoloft (sertraline) contribute to the incidence of fetal omaphalocele? It’s a question many parents are just starting to ask, but it’s an issue that medical experts have answered for years. According to research in the New England Journal of Medicine, sertraline use during the first trimester of pregnancy has been shown to increase the probability of omphalocele by an astonishing 600 percent.
