FDA Warnings and Labeling
In 2006, the FDA alerted the public to heightened risk of Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension in Newborns (PPHN) for babies exposed to Zoloft in utero, use by mothers while pregnant.
Zoloft has been strongly linked to causing heart defects in children born by mothers who used the drug during pregnancy. In 2005, studies linked the drug to causing congenital (present at birth) heart defects, particularly Atrial Septal Defects (ASD) and Ventricular Septal Defects (VSD). These conditions, commonly known as ASD and VSD, result when a child’s heart does not fully develop in the fetal stage leading to holes in the wall of heart chambers.. Other, birth injuries may include cleft palate, clubfoot and various defects affecting the heart, skull and abdominal wall. Contact an Experienced Zoloft Litigation Lawyer Today.
