Manufacturer: Ani Pharms

SSRI Antidepressants and Pregnancy

It has been shown that one of the side effects of Luvox and other SSRIs is an increased risk of birth defects. Women who take SSRIs during pregnancy have a higher risk of giving birth to newborns with the following ailments:

  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension
  • Heart defects
  • Transposition of the great arteries
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Craniosyntosis
  • Omphalocele
  • Club foot
  • Limb defects
  • Lung defects
  • Asthma/breathing issues

Drug Manufacturers Should Be Held Accountable

SSRI manufacturers are facing lawsuits because they didn’t do a good enough job warning doctors or patients of their products’ risks. Studies have also shown that manufacturers suppressed negative information about their drugs, further misleading the public.
