Since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Paxil in 1992, many people have used the drug to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder and social anxiety disorder.

However, in 2001, the FDA began to require the manufacturer of this medication, GlaxoSmithKline, to increase warning levels about the side effects of Paxil. If you or anyone you know has suffered from side effects after taking this prescription drug, then we encourage you to seek the services of a qualified attorney immediately.

A Paxil attorney will represent you against the manufacturer in litigation and present evidence of how you were injured due to using the drug. Also, a qualified and experienced attorney will know the symptoms of the drugs side effects and how they affect you and your family.

Paxil Can Cause Birth Defects

Another heart-wrenching aspect of Paxil side effects are birth defects. Birth defects can cause untold emotional and physical stress. If you took Paxil and your child was born with birth defects, an attorney can present strong evidence to a jury that this specific medication is the cause of your childs birth defects. Having a personal injury attorney who can present facts in a courtroom relating to how and why your child has birth defects can give you a huge advantage. If you have a child born with birth defects due to Paxil, contact an experienced lawyer today.

Other Paxil Side Effects and Injuries

Some of the side effects associated with Paxil use include:

  • Homicidal and suicidal tendencies
  • Difficult withdrawal with marked dependency symptoms
  • Psychological symptoms (anxiety attacks, mood swings)
  • A marked risk of causing suicidal thoughts and tendencies in children under the age of 18

By hiring a Paxil attorney, you could receive a fair amount of compensation or even save another persons life by taking action against the makers of the drug.

A good attorney will present the facts of your case to a judge and/or jury and fight for the truth. Having an attorney by your side can improve your chances of receiving fair compensation. With a qualified personal injury lawyer working for you, you could have a better day in court than you would if you went at it alone. A Paxil attorney can convey the emotional heartache associated with the side effects of taking this medication to a jury and/or judge. Do not face pharmaceutical companies alone hire a Paxil attorney before seeking compensation.

Who Can Get Compensation for Paxil Use?

Those who suffer from Paxil side effects or have seen their small child injured by the medicine may have a strong case against the manufacturer. If you or a loved one has taken this drug and had a child who suffered birth defects as a result of use by the mother, you could be entitled to compensation. A lawyer experienced in handling these types of cases will know if you are or not. A Paxil attorney can fight for your right to compensation.
