A Zoloft Lawsuit Can Recover for Your Family's Wellbeing
[Posted on 25 Jan 2013 by Chandler Law]
In the world of pharmaceutical litigation, a Zoloft lawsuit is not an uncommon event. Zoloft has been a widely distributed drug for depression, marketed by Pfizer both under its brand name as well as a generic name, Sertraline. While the drug has not had a major issue with general patients being subscribed the drug for depression and is approved for such use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, there have been significantly large number of cases of birth defects occurring in pregnant women prescribed the drug. Clinical studies from a number of respected sources have found linkages between ingestion of Zoloft by pregnant women and a noticeably higher risk of birth defects in fetuses and babies.
The trend of birth defects that have been known to occur and are associated with intake of the Zoloft drug can include the following:
- Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn or PPHN
- Ventricular septal defects or VSD
- Atrial septal defects or ASD
