The Truth about Paxil

August 11, 2012

Unfortunately, there’s more misinformation about Paxil (paroxetine) than there should be. Yes, the absolute risks associated with taking Paxil during pregnancy are small. However, medical studies have shown – and, as a result, the Food and Drug Administration has warned – that serious birth defects have been linked to maternal consumption of Paxil during pregnancy. In fact, a comprehensive 3,500-person study concluded that Paxil was associated with twice as many birth defects as other antidepressants. For families whose child has suffered, these statistics can be upsetting.


Are you concerned that fetal Paxil exposure may be the reason that your child was born with a heart, lung, or physical birth defect?
