How Many Paxil Cases Have Been Filed?

May 19, 2012

Are you familiar with the side effects of Paxil (paroxetine)? If you’re a female Paxil patient who is pregnant or might become pregnant, you should be.


First approved for the U.S. market in 1992, Paxil, a widely prescribed antidepressant and member of the increasingly infamous class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), has become the subject of first medical and now legal scrutiny. The reason is simple and, for some families, very painful: several medical studies have linked Paxil to a host of birth defects including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and brain and heart abnormalities. At least 600 victims and their families have filed suit against the maker of Paxil – with the number expected to grow.


The law firm of Fears Nachawati is prepared to advise you if your family is concerned about the relationship between your child’s development conditions and his or her mother’s exposure to Paxil or other SSRIs during pregnancy.
