Serotonin reuptake inhibitors use (including Paxil) during pregnancy increases risk of reduced infant head size and preterm birth.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who filed a Paxil Recall lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
A new study, published in the July 2012 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry, reveals that serotonin reuptake inhibitors use (including Paxil) during pregnancy increases risk of reduced infant head size and preterm birth. Paxil is an antidepressant drug belonging to a group called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). 7,696 pregnant women were included in the study and the objective of the researchers was to examine the effects of maternal SSRI use during pregnancy on fetal growth and birth outcomes.
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.

As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that 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.”
According to court documents, a Louisiana couple, Russell and Desiree Figueroa, filed a lawsuit on March 25th, 2011 in Louisiana Western District Court (case no. 2:2011cv00492) alleging that their son suffered birth defects caused by Paxil taken by Desiree during pregnancy.
