A Letter from David Eisbrouch, Esq.
I have been a Zoloft lawyer ever since the extent of Zoloft side effects was first made public. In 2005, the FDA issued a warning about the risk of suicide among patients treating with SSRI anti-depressants such as Zoloft. Soon thereafter, new information was released about Zoloft birth defects.
A 2006 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine examined the link between Zoloft and persistent pulmonary hypertension in the newborn. Persistent pulmonary hypertension, or PPHN, is a birth defect that causes low blood oxygen levels, circulatory disorders, and respiratory problems. Zoloft has also been linked to numerous other birth defects including congenital heart defects like ASD an VSD, neural tube defects like spina bifida and omphalocele, and physical deformities such as clubfoot.
Current scientific evidence suggests that the occurrence of Zoloft birth defects remains rare. However, the volume of calls we receive to our Zoloft lawsuit phone number suggests that the instances are far from insignificant. Millions of people take SSRI anti-depressants every single day. While the majority of patients enjoy relief from their depression and anxiety, some patients unknowingly place their own lives and the lives of their unborn children at risk.
As a Zoloft attorney, it concerns me that the full scope of birth defects is not indicated on SSRI medication labels. In fact, the FDA does not require a specific warning at all, relying instead on the doctor’s assessment of the risk of Zoloft birth defects on a case by case basis.
Balkin & Eisbrouch are leading Zoloft attorneys keeping a watchful eye on the latest breaking medical and legal developments regarding this drug. We are committed to helping the mothers, babies, and families whose lives have been impacted as a result of Zoloft birth defects.
Call the Zoloft lawsuit phone number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to speak with a Zoloft lawyer about this very serious area of pharmaceutical litigation. The consultation is free and there is never a fee unless we win your case.
