AttorneyOne, a recognized authority on law, provides the latest news concerning the antidepressant drug Paxil: According to court documents, on October 17th, 2012, US District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter granted a motion by GlaxoSmithKline to transfer a Paxil antidepressant products liability claim (case no. 2:2012cv03272, Pennsylvania Eastern District Court) to the U.S. District Court in Western Louisiana. 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 Paxil lawsuit, plaintiff Cinda McLaughlin claims she suffered injuries after ingesting Paxil and its generic equivalent, paroxetine, produced by Apotex and Cadila Healthcare. McLaughlin underwent aortic and mitral valve replacement in 2010. Prior to the surgery she had been taking Paxil and paroxetine to treat her depression. After surgery, she alleges, her aortic valve was thickened and she subsequently suffered aortic insufficiency and mitral insufficiency, among others, requiring additional surgery.
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.
