PAXIL AND BIRTH DEFECTS: The Law Firm of D’Arcy Johnson Day is currently investigating Paxil induced injury cases. Paxil, a medication manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline has been linked to serious risks and dangerous side effects that may not have been adequately advised when prescribed. Since its approval in 1992, many people have used the drug to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder and social anxiety disorder.
Paxil may be linked to severe side effects including birth defects, birthing complications, birth injuries, heart defects and suicidal tendencies. It is estimated that almost 17 million people worldwide have been treated with this antidepressant. Pregnant women who take Paxil during their first trimester increase the risk their babies will be born with birth defects. The FDA has released a warning stating the risk of birth defects can be increased by two times the normal rate.
