Zoloft® Birth Defects and Pregnancy
Zoloft® and other antidepressants in its class have been linked to an increase in the risk of certain birth defects in babies whose mothers take the antidepressants during pregnancy. The birth defect risk has raised concern as to whether these antidepressants are safe for pregnant women. The problem is that untreated depression can pose risks to the mother and baby as well.
If you are taking Zoloft® and are pregnant or are thinking about becoming pregnant, it is important that you discuss the potential risks with your doctor. Do not stop taking your antidepressant without talking with your doctor.
Zoloft® and other SSRI antidepressants have been linked to an increase in the risk of a number of congenital abnormalities, including:
- Heart defects that affect the heart, valves and or arteries or veins
- Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), a serious lung disorder
- Anal atresia, an anus malformation
- Omphalocele, an abdominal defect
