Michigan Paxil Birth Defect Lawyer

We are accepting Paxil and all other SSRI antidepressants cases, including Zoloft, Lexapro and Prozac, for women that took an SSRI during their pregnancy resulting in their child being born with a birth defect.

Our Michigan Paxil lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle cases involving children suffering from severe birth defects, pulmonary hypertension, and other problems resulting from mothers exposed to Paxil or other SSRI antidepressants during pregnancy. The side effects of these drugs can be quite serious, and in some cases death. When a child is injured, it can give rise to a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company and drug manufacturer. Often times, these drug lawsuits result in significant settlements.

What is Paxil?

Paxil is in a class of medication known as serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, and is used to treat depression. It is known to be an effective drug in treating depression, but in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported severe side effects. Users, particularly pregnant women, have been affected by them. 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.

Paxil Lawsuit For Birth Defects

Birth defects are one of the most dangerous side effects of Paxil and other SSRI antidepressants, including Zoloft, Lexapro and Prozac. A woman who is pregnant should speak to her doctor about continuing to take the prescribed medication as well as be aware of all of the warning signs. Symptoms such as anxiety, anger, impulsive speech, and headaches are all important symptoms a pregnant woman should look out for when taking Paxil or SSRI antidepressants.


Recent studies have shown Paxil increased the risk of general birth defects by 50%. In addition, it was found 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). Other serious side effects associated with Paxil during pregnancy include premature births, abdominal defects, brain injury, and lack of oxygen in the baby's blood.

Children who suffer birth defect injuries after a mother was taking Paxil or any other type of SSRI prescribed drug have legal rights and parents may have a possible lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company and drug manufacturer on behalf of their newborn. For GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer of Paxil, failure to warn individuals of the defective nature of the drug may lead it to be held liable for those whose children suffer birth injuries.
