SSRI Antidepressants Birth Defects

Attorney Matthew McCauley of Parker Waichman shares new information in which anti-depressants have been linked with certain birth defects.

Any baby born with a birth defect faces a much more challenging life, which can be full of medical problems and bills. Recent studies have begun linking the usage of anti-depressants such was Wellbutrin and Prozac with the cause of certain birth defects. These defects can include cardiac problems or malformations like club foots, cleft palates, or extra fingers and toes. It is being reported that the risk lies when the drug is used during pre-pregnancy or early trimester. Watch this video now to learn more.
