Numerous studies have pointed to the link between antidepressants such as Zoloft and significant birth defects in children whose mothers took the drug during pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester.
Women were not made aware of these risks and unknowingly ingested drugs that are capable of interfering with the development of a fetus. The FDA has classified Zoloft as a Category C pregnancy drug, meaning that the risk of birth defects is possible but unknown at this time. To be considered a Category C, evidence must be found that the drug has shown adverse effects to the fetus when ingested during pregnancy. One of the leading complications is congenital heart deformity, but other resulting conditions include cleft lip, cleft palate, clubbed foot, limb defects, neural tube birth defects, anal atresia, omphalocele and craniosynostosis.
Zoloft has also been linked to developmental delays such as autism.
If you or a loved one ingested Zoloft during pregnancy, resulting in a birth defect to a child, you may have a case against Pfizer.
