Prozac Birth Defects and Their Legal Consequences
Every year, thousands of infants are born with congenital heart defects and a rare pulmonary condition known as PPHN, persistent pulmonary hypertension. Although the causes of these birth conditions are many, one source of risk according to some medical researchers is a class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), including the widely prescribed drug Prozac (fluoxetine).
Are you a new mother who took Prozac during your pregnancy? Was your child born with abnormal medical conditions, such PPHN? If the answer to these questions, you may need to consider the legal consequences of your Prozac prescription as well the medical ones. You, your family, and your child may have a valid claim against the parties responsible for bringing this dangerous drug to market.
