Facts about Zoloft:
Zoloft is an SSRI antidepressant which is approved by the FDA to treat a range of disorders including Major Depressive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, and Social Anxiety Disorder. Pfizer obtained approval by the FDA in 1991 and recorded $3.3 billion in sales in 2005, which was the last full year of patent protection. The generic form of Zoloft (sertraline) went on the market in June 2006.
Studies show a link between serious birth defects and the mother’s use of Zoloft during all or part of her pregnancy. A recent study found that taking SSRIs while pregnant can double and in some cases quadruple the risk of birth defects, including but not limited to: congenital heart defects, Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), abdominal and cranial birth defects, cleft lip with or without cleft palate, Spina Bifida, Autism, and esophageal, anal, and/or intestinal atresia.
How to know if you or a loved one is at risk:
- Did the mother take Zoloft during pregnancy or at any time in the 30 days prior to conception?
- Did the mother take any other SSRIs (Paxil, Celexa, Wellbutrin, Prozac, or Lexapro) just prior to or during pregnancy?
- Has the baby been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect or any other birth defect?
- When did the mother take Zoloft (start and end dates)?
- When was the baby born?
- Do the parents have any other children with significant health problems and/or birth defects?
