Presented with AAJ's SSRI Antidepressant Birth Defect Cases Litigation Group
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, and Lexapro, are commonly prescribed drugs used to treat depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. AAJ’s Selective Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRIs) Case Evaluation and Screening Teleseminar will provide an in-depth look at the link between the use of SSRIs during pregnancy and potential birth and developmental defects, such as pulmonary hypertension, hypoplastic left heart, and conotruncal defects. Issuing its first Public Health Advisory warning in December of 2005, the FDA has issued additional warnings of the dangers of SSRIs taken during pregnancy. Through exploration of SSRI history, as well as recent studies, the faculty will delve into information and strategies that will help plaintiff lawyers understand how to proceed with current litigation, including an update on the Zoloft MDL.
