Zoloft & Lactation: The Risks Persist

July 28, 2012

Zoloft (sertraline) isn’t just a widely prescribed antidepressant which medical studies have shown puts fetuses at risk of developing heart, lung, and bodily birth defects when consumed by pregnant mothers. It’s also a widely prescribed antidepressant with the power to injure infants when consumed by patients who breastfeed.


Sadly, the lactation-based risks of Zoloft are less well known among patients. Nevertheless, the potential for infant injury remains. In fact, the concentration of sertraline in breast milk can reach as high as one-third of maternal exposure. The tragic results of newborn exposure to Zoloft include such painful and life-altering injuries as limb reduction and heart conditions.


For years, the attorneys at the Dallas law firm of Fears Nachawati have worked to protect the victims of harmful Zoloft exposure. Thanks to our dedication and skill, we’re prepared to reach settlements and verdicts that our clients deserve – and that gives them a chance to get back on their feet.
