The antidepressant drug Zoloft, also known as sertraline hydrochloride has been linked in some studies to birth defects in children born to mothers who were taking the drug while pregnant. Many lawsuits have already been filed against the drug maker Pfizer. These lawsuits allege that Zoloft causes numerous birth defects, injuries, and other complications when taken by pregnant women during their first trimester.
Women who took Zoloft while pregnant and had a baby born with health problems may be able to advance a lawsuit.
Some of the common birth defects reported by woman who took Zoloft while pregnant in Canada, include the following:
- Clubbed Foot;
- Cleft Lip;
- Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension PPHN;
- Developmental Delay;
- Enlarged heart;
- Septal heart defects;
- Left outflow tract heart defects;
- Neural tube defects;
- Spina bifida.
