Prozac, Pregnancy, & Pulmonary Stenosis
Prozac (fluoxetine) may be effective at treating depression, but it comes with a series of risks that shock many pregnant Prozac patients. For too many families, fetal exposure to maternal Prozac treatments is so significant as to cause permanent, painful birth defects.
What are these Prozac-linked birth defects? Unfortunately, they are many, often relating to a newborn’s heart, lungs, brain, and abdomen. One of the most terrifying cardiac conditions is pulmonary stenosis. Children suffering from pulmonary stenosis experience a narrowing of the leaflets in their heart’s pulmonary valve. Consequently, the heart is placed under unusual, severe strain, sometimes leading to heart failure.
