Nashville Paxil Lawyers
Recent studies from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have reported that taking the antidepressant drug Paxil can increase the risk of birth defects, most specifically heart defects. In fact, studies showed that women were roughly one and a half to two times more likely to have a child with birth defects when taking Paxil during the first three months of pregnancy than those who didn’t or who took other antidepressants.
If you have taken the antidepressant drug Paxil in the past and have had a child with birth defects, you may be eligible for financial compensation to pay for incurred expenses and suffering.

Common Birth Defects
When your child suffers from a birth defect, it can have a life-altering impact on not only them, but your entire family. Birth defects can severely compromise your child’s quality of life and may prevent him or her from reaching their full physical or mental potential. Paxil has been linked to a number of birth defects, including the following:
- Clubbed foot
- Cleft palate
- Heart defects (atrial and ventricular septal)
- Spina bifida
- Brain and spinal cord defects
Any of the above defects can not only be costly to your child’s physical and emotional health, but can also be financially devastating. When a defective drug has caused this kind of damage to your child and family, you should not have to shoulder the financial burdens.
