Zoloft PPHN Lawsuit Attorney : SSRI Zoloft Settlement Lawyer

Zoloft is an antidepressant drug used to treat a variety of depression and anxiety-related emotional and mood disorders. Zoloft (generic name sertraline) is a member of a class of drugs called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants. SSRIs work by increasing serotonin levels in the body. Serotonin is a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance. Zoloft (sertaline) was first approved by the FDA in 1991.

Use of SSRI antidepressants including Zoloft during pregnancy has been linked to an increased risk of Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN) and other birth defects. Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN) is a life-threatening condition in which a baby’s circulatory system does not make the normal transition from fetal to newborn circulation.

On July 19, 2006, the FDA issued a Drug Safety Alert for Zoloft PPHN birth defects risk. The drug alert was based on a study which showed that babies born to women who took Zoloft or other SSRI antidepressants after the 20th week of pregnancy were 6 times more likely to suffer PPHN than infants born to mothers who did not take SSRI antidepressants during pregnancy. That’s a 600% increased risk of PPHN for babies born after Zoloft use during the second half of pregnancy.

Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN) is a life-threatening condition in which a baby’s circulatory system does not make the normal transition from fetal to newborn circulation.
