Just How Dangerous is Paxil?

May 12, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and multiple medical journals have cited serious concerns about the risks associated with women who take Paxil (paroxetine) during their pregnancy. In particular, these sources worry that expecting mothers transfer paroxetine to their in utero child through the umbilical cord.


Tragically, while adult women are prepared to handle the ingredients in Paxil, many fetuses simply are not. As a result of Paxil, thousands of infants have been born with a series of birth defects, such as heart malformations, brain defects, and other threatening conditions. To date, the maker has reportedly settled hundreds of Paxil claims for more than $1 billion.
