Sertraline Lawsuit Birth Defects Sertraline and Pregnancy Side Effects Sertraline Recall

Sertraline Recall

Numerous studies have linked the use of Sertraline during pregnancy with an increased risk for birth defects. In fact, another study was recently published in Denmark which showed that heart related issues like Ventricular Septal Defect and Artial Septal Defect tripled when the drug was present. To date, no recall has been initiated by the FDA though, as it is only poses a risk for women who are pregnant.

The FDA has issued warnings on the subject though and its possible future action could be taken. They have publically associated SSRIs like Sertraline (Zoloft) Ventricular Septal Defect, Atrial Septal Defect and Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension. In 2006, they updated requirements on prescription information to warn about possible risk for birth defects but as of right now, it’s still a Pregnancy Category C prescription, instead of D (which is carries more weight). This system of categories is a way of helping doctors know which drugs are safe to recommend during pregnancy. It’s thought that Sertraline will eventually be moved to Category D, when the FDA has been able to fully analyze all of the data from the numerous human studies though.

If you took Sertraline or Zoloft during your pregnancy and your newborn suffers from a birth defect, you owe it to yourself and your child to look into filing a Sertraline lawsuit.
