FDA issued an alert to include the risk of birth defects on Paxil (paroxetine) warning labels for women during pregnancy or while breast-feeding. Paxil is used to treat depression and anxiety disorders, but it has been linked to Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension in Newborns (PPHN) which is a destructive condition to the heart and lungs of newborn infants.
If you or someone you loved took Paxil during pregnancy and your baby was born with heart or lung complications, call the the Stampfle Law Firm to help evaluate your claim.
Paxil is a Selective Serotonin Reputake Inhibitor (SSRI) class drug and has been one of the most popular antidepressants since 1993 and has been taken by tens of millions of patients worldwide.
Research and studies have shown that the risk of heart defects has increased for infants born to women taking the antidepressant drug Paxil during their first trimester of pregnancy.
The most common heart defects are holes and malformations in between the two main pumping chambers of the heart (ventricular spetal defect).

Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) is a life-threatening lung condition that can have long-term complications to newborns. PPHN occurs when a newborn can not adapt to breathing outside the womb. This is due to high blood pressure in their lungs which does not allow enough oxygen to enter through their bloodstream.
If your child was born with heart or lung complications, then you need to call the Law Offices of the Stampfle Law Firm immediately to get help.
