The dangerous drug lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent victims suffering from injuries after taking the prescribed medication Paxil. The side effects of Paxil can be serious including severe birth defects and pulmonary hypertension, seizures, and even having trouble breathing.
Paxil is a prescribed medication that is used to treat depression. However, even though it is known to be an effective drug in treating this medical condition, in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported severe side effects that users, particular pregnant women, have been affected by. In fact, in 2005 the FDA issued a warning that patients who took Paxil were at an increased risk of birth defects, especially heart defects, with the highest risk group being women taking Paxil during the first trimester of pregnancy. In addition, it was found that mothers who took the drug after 20 weeks of pregnancy were six times more likely to give birth to a child with persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN).
Individuals suffering from injuries as a result of taking this medicine may have legal claims to file a lawsuit against the drug manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline. It is important that you hire the best possible attorney with the most experience to represent you because otherwise you may be turned away from potential damage claims.
