Paxil Manufacturer’s Study Suggests Birth Defects More Likely with Paxil

November 19, 2011

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the drug company responsible for making Paxil (paroxetine), recently concluded a study that revealed surprising information about the risks of Paxil, a widely prescribed antidepressant. The comprehensive GSK study showed that Paxil caused twice as many major birth defects in the children of women who took Paxil during their first trimester.


In response to these dramatic findings, the FDA requested that GSK change its pregnancy category from C to D in order to indicate that Paxil imposes a risk to the fetus. Thousands of families have been hurt by Paxil and similarly dangerous selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). You may be one of them. The FDA took action. Will you?
