St. Louis Zoloft Birth Defect Attorneys
Scientists have discovered that the anti-depression drug Zoloft greatly increases the chance of a baby developing birth defects.
Pregnant women are often under tremendous physical, hormonal, and emotional pressure during their pregnancies. Doctors will often prescribe medicines to help relieve some of these symptoms, occasionally without an understanding of how that drug might interact with the growing baby.
In recent years there has been an increase in the number of babies born with spina bifida, a genetic defect in which the two halves of the spine are not joined together properly. Scientists have discovered that the anti-depression drug Zoloft, sometimes prescribed for emotional expectant mothers, greatly increases the chance of their baby developing spina bifida or other birth defects.
Some other common conditions related to taking Zoloft during pregnancy include babies with heart, skull and abdominal problems.
These women and their children are the unwitting victims of improper testing and marketing of this powerful drug, and they are due compensation for their physical and emotional pain. The Zevan and Davidson Law Firm is committed to protecting innocent mothers and their unborn children from drug company negligence and lax government oversight.
