Prozac Shown to Cause Spike in Birth Defects Risk

January 3, 2012

Prozac (fluoxetine) patients are wrong to assume that the risks associated with their selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) are minimal. Rather, according to recent medical research, pregnant Prozac patients suffer as much as a 200 percent increase in the probability that their child will be born with a medical abnormality.


Determining the scope of Prozac-related injuries, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh recently concluded in the Journal of the American Medical Association that doctors prescribe Prozac and other SSRIs to more than 80,000 pregnant women every year. With so many pregnancies at risk, you’d think that SSRI drug manufacturers would make more diligent efforts to notify physicians and patients of their drug’s inherent dangers. Tragically, they haven’t.
