Zoloft Lawsuits - Birth Defects Attorneys
Zoloft (sertraline) is an antidepressant medication classified in a group of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRI antidepressant drugs. Zoloft was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat depression, anxiety disorders, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and panic disorders.
Scientists have concluded that women taking Zoloft while they are pregnant are at a greater risk of giving birth to a child with congenital birth defects. The strong link between Zoloft side effects and congenital heart defects has prompted many doctors to warn pregnant patients to stop using Zoloft during pregnancy.
