Why Did the FDA Raise Its Paxil Warning?

July 14, 2012

In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has made clear that Paxil (paroxetine) carries with it very real risks. On the basis of a 3,500-person study, the FDA announced that risks of birth defects associated with Paxil were twice as high as those of other antidepressants. The most common Paxil-linked birth defects were a series of heart abnormalities such as septal defects.



Did you take Paxil while you were pregnant? Was your child born with a heart condition or another birth defect? The relationship between these two seemingly independent things might be closer than you realized. What’s more, for some patients and their families, the dangers of Paxil and the injury they faced have provided a basis for legal recovery.
