No Longer Accepting Cases

Antidepressants like Prozac have recently been linked to adverse health effects in children born to mothers who took the medication while pregnant.

Prozac Overview

In 1987, fluoxetine (Prozac) was introduced to the U.S. market by Eli Lilly & Co. and became an instant success. Within two years, pharmacies were filing 65,000 Prozac prescriptions a month. However, recent studies have suggested that the use of Prozac may be responsible for serious adverse health effects in newborns. Pregnant mothers who use the antidepressant may dramatically increase the risk of their child being born with a severe, life-threatening congenital birth defect.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acknowledged the severity of the situation in July 2006 when they issued a warning about the potential Prozac side effects that were associated with newborn babies.
