New York (PRWEB) March 28, 2012
The SSRI/preeclaimpsia connection was drawn by a Canadian study published in the March 22, 2012, edition of the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. According to U.S. News, the study found that women who took SSRIs including Zoloft during their pregnancies were at a 60% higher risk of developing high blood pressure. The total risk increased from 2% to 3.2%.
For the women who took Paxil, the risk was even greater: SSRI use increased their chances of developing preeclampsia to 3.6%.
“We know that antidepressants should be used with caution [during pregnancy],” the U.S. News article quotes the lead researcher, Anick Berard, as having stated. “The association between SSRIs and hypertension is a new finding.” Berard is the director of the research unit of medications and pregnancy at Ste-Justine’s.
