Birth Defects from Zoloft
Zoloft antidepressant medications is a part of the class of drugs called serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
In addition to Zoloft other brand name SSRI’s include:
The FDA issued a Public Health Advisory on December 8, 2005 warning that use of certain antidepressants during the first trimester of pregnancy may be associated with an increased risk of heart birth defects. The advisory was based on U.S. and Swedish studies showing that exposure to certain antidepressants increased the risk of cardiac defects, including atrial and ventricular septal defects, conditions in which the wall between the right and left sides of the heart is not completely developed.
In July 2006 the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an alert that SSRIs were linked to an increased risk of neonatal persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) which is "associated with significant morbidity and mortality." Other reported side effects linked to Zoloft include:
- Club foot
- Serotonin Syndrome
- Spina bifida
Pfizer introduced Zoloft to the market in 1991 for use as an antidepressant, as well as in treating obsessive-compulsive, panic, and social anxiety disorders in children and adults. It was the most prescribed antidepressant in the United States in 2007, with nearly 30 million prescriptions written.
