Belonging to a group of anti-depressant drugs known as Selective Serotonin & Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SSNRIs), Effexor is a very popular drug that was first introduced by Wyeth, which was purchased by Pfizer. Although a common complaint about the drug is that it actually worsens the symptoms of depression, an alarming number of reports and studies are linking Effexor use to birth defects and miscarriages for pregnant users.
Reports by a major Danish study led researchers to conclude that the exposure to anti-depressant medications did have an effect on "fetal brain development." Moreover, the Canadian Medical Association reported that researchers at the University of Montreal found that women taking Effexor during their pregnancies were significantly more likely to experience a miscarriage. The study found that the risk of suffering a miscarriage for Effexor, and other anti-depressant medication users, was 68 percent higher than those not taking such medications. Most alarming was the from that sample taken by the Quebec Pregnancy Registry who experienced the miscarriages, the use of Effexor doubled the risk of it.
