Zoloft® and Birth Defect Risk
Zoloft® (sertraline) has been linked to some serious and life-threatening birth defects. The Zoloft® birth defect risk has spurred concern that the antidepressant may not be safe for pregnant women. Despite the association, some women are encouraged to continue to take Zoloft® during their pregnancies, because in some cases, untreated depression can have a greater risk for the unborn child and the mother.
If you become pregnant while taking Zoloft®, you should not stop taking the medication without consulting your doctor. Only a qualified healthcare professional can determine if the risks outweigh the benefits of a medication.
Our Zoloft® birth defect lawyers are here to help if your baby is born with a congenital defect and you took Zoloft® any time during your pregnancy. According to reports, the birth defect risk is broad and can include:
- Heart valve defects
- Septal defects
- Persistent pulmonary hypertention of the newborn
- Anal atresia
- Head and skull defects (craniosynostosis)
- Spina bifida
- Other congenital defects
