San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Scott and Leigh Remsburg and people who suffer from Paxil Side Effects.
According to court documents, on October 19th, 2012, Scott and Leigh Remsburg filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv05962) alleging their baby daughter died as a result of heart birth defects caused by her mother’s use of Paxil and Zoloft during pregnancy. Paxil (paroxetine), produced by GlaxoSmithKline and approved in 1992 by the FDA, is an antidepressant drug belonging to a group called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). In the lawsuit, Scott and Leigh Remsburg mention that their baby girl was born in February 2005 with cardiac anomalies as a result of her mother’s use of Paxil and Zoloft during pregnancy. The baby died a few days later from atrial and ventricular septal defects and congestive heart failure.
In January 2012, the British Medical Journal published a study revealing that selective SSRIs, including Paxil, are linked to pulmonary hypertension in newborns (PPHN) of mothers who took them during pregnancy.
In cases of severe adverse events from Paxil like the above, AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information and the lawsuit really illustrate is that alleged threat from Paxil remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
A study, published in the July 2012 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry, revealed that serotonin reuptake inhibitors use (including Paxil) during pregnancy increases risk of reduced infant head size and preterm birth.
