The Trouble with Zoloft
Zoloft (sertraline), a widely prescribed antidepressant known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), is problematic for a pregnant woman and the child growing inside her. Some women who took prescription SSRIs during pregnancy gave birth to children suffering from a variety of heart, lung, and developmental birth defects, and medical studies have confirmed that a cognizable link between SSRI exposure and fetal injury exists.
The trouble with Zoloft, however, isn’t simply that it imposes risks upon consumers. The deeper problem is that some patients and their physicians weren’t adequately warned about the risks of Zoloft – or notified that other non-SSRI antidepressants such as Wellbutrin (bupropion) may provide safer but equally effective treatment options. As any patient knows, having complete information is essential for making an informed decision.
Are you a Zoloft patient whose child was born with a heart, lung, or developmental birth defect?
