Paxil Doubles Heart Defect Risk in Newborns
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), several recent studies suggest that women who take Paxil (paroxetine) during the first three months of pregnancy increase the risk that their child is born with heart birth defects by an astonishing 150 to 200 percent. The types of heart defects observed in the research were atrial and ventricular septal defects and ranged in severity from minor to serious, requiring surgery.
The risk of injury was so severe that the FDA requested that the drug manufacturer responsible for producing Paxil downgrade Paxil from Pregnancy Category C to Pregnancy Category D.
