Paroxetine Shown to Increase Risk of Spontaneous Abortion

December 17, 2011

By any measure, Paxil (paroxetine) is a dangerous drug. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have recommended that pregnant women avoid taking drugs containing paroxetine. Multiple, medical studies have found that paroxetine treatments during pregnancy increase the risk of congenital defects by between 150 and 170 percent. The risk for heart defects such as persistent pulmonary hypertension is particularly high.


Now, health researchers have determined that paroxetine use by women who are pregnant notably increases the risk of spontaneous abortion.
