Before you begin preparing for a Zoloft lawsuit, you should understand more about the drug Zoloft. It was produced by Pfizer Inc. and is one of the many anti-depressants known as SSRIs. Proven to be connected to causing developmental birth defects and PPHN in newborn babies of expectant mothers taking the medication, severe withdrawal symptoms in its users when discontinued, increasing rate of suicide in adults and children, and increasing risk of bone loss for older patients, Zoloft manufacturers have been faced with huge Zoloft lawsuits in the past few years. Plaintiffs have sought compensation for the suicide, injury, pain, withdrawal symptoms, and other damage caused to infants and mothers that were not warned by Pfizer Inc. of its side effects before taking it.
Due to warnings with regards to suicide dangers on anti-depressants having been in place for a while now, many doctors prescribing medicines like Zoloft are aware of risks involved. In the future, it is likely to become difficult to bring in Zoloft lawsuit cases against manufacturers of the drug for attempts to suicide post warnings being put in place. However, it could still be possible to sue your doctor for the drug’s prescription or inadequate monitoring of patients for tendencies of suicide.
In recent years, there have also been many linkups of Zoloft with birth defects and delivery complications. The anti-depressant is an SSRI or selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor which raises risks of child birth with defects greatly if consumed in pregnancy, especially in the 3rd trimester. Along with several other anti-depressants, Zoloft use in pregnancy has been connected to PPHN and many other kinds of birth defects. Today, thousands of people affected by Pfizer negligence are pursuing Zoloft lawsuit cases in courts all over America.
Many different kinds of birth defects in newborns have been linked with use of anti-depressants like Zoloft during pregnancy. That includes:
• Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of Newborn – PPHN

FDA has issued public health advisories warning health care professionals and consumers both about link-ups of Zoloft to severe birth defects in pregnancy that may even be life-threatening. However, the FDA has not officially estimated the percentage of children and women at likely risk. It is certain that this is going to be a very figure as over 30 million prescriptions of Zoloft are being filled in every single year since its introduction.
Dangers of the difficult side effects and birth defects in infants caused by Zoloft are yet to be admitted by Pfizer, in spite of hundreds of Zoloft lawsuit cases piling up in US courts as every month passes. The companies themselves have sought to defend themselves vigorously and not warn the public or doctors about potential dangers clearly yet, in spite of dispute and accusations being made for over 5 years now against them. Although there are a number of anti-depressants facing similar lawsuits, Paxil is the most publicized one by far. Since the first lawsuit against Paxil was filed back in 2006 when an infant was born with severe lung conditions and PPHN after the mother took Paxil, thousands of cases have been filed and won against its manufacturers. This study in 2006 also linked increased PPHN risks to Zoloft.
Critics claim that Pfizer are also making strong efforts to hide information about anti-depressant effectiveness from the public and doctors in efforts to keep the pregnant in society and other people taking the medicine despite its risks simply to maximise their profits. That is likely to raise responsibilities of Pfizer for harms that result from Zoloft use and the repercussion compensation they have to pay as well in Zoloft lawsuit cases.
