Why is the First Trimester a Danger Time for Zoloft Patients?

July 13, 2012

Pregnancy is often a difficult time for expecting mothers and their families. Unfortunately for some Americans, there’s more to worry about than just the typical concerns. If you’re an SSRI patient, you may need to consider the very real effect that prenatal SSRI exposure can have on your child.


Recent medical findings as well as warnings from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggest that pregnant Zoloft (sertraline) patients may be at risk of inadvertently transferring harmful medicinal properties to their in utero child. In fact, one estimate is that fetal exposure is as high as a third of maternal exposure. To make matters worse, the risk of Zoloft-related injury is highest during the first trimester: precisely when some pregnant patients aren’t even aware that they’re carrying a child.


Was your child born with a Zoloft-related birth defect? Were your legal rights violated? Do you have a viable legal claim? These are important questions. Fortunately for you, the experienced and dedicated legal team at the Dallas firm of Fears Nachawati have the answers that you need. Find out how we can help you by contacting us today.
