Paxil Birth Defect Attorney


Paxil Birth Defect AttorneyPaxil is a prescription drug used to treat severe depression and other psychological disorders, including obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and panic disorder, among others.  Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, Paxil is part of a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI).  SSRI’s function by preventing the human brain from absorbing extra serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls a person’s mood.  Ideally, this causes creates a balance, allowing people to maintain positive emotions.

Paxil Side Effects

First introduced in 1992, Paxil eventually exploded as a go to drug for physicians with clients dealing with depression and other anxiety disorders.  Quickly, the drug rose to become the most popular anti-depressant drug in the United States.  By 2001 however, the Food and Drug Administration required GlaxoSmithKline to include warning labels about the potential side effects of the drug.  These side effects include: Paxil birth defects such as:
  • Premature birth
  • Miscarriage
  • Septal heart problems
  • Cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Spina Bifida
  • Omphalocele
  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension (PPHN)
Other side effect are:
  • Seizures
  • Suicide
  • Abnormal heart rate
  • Allergic reaction

Paxil Lawsuits

By 2004, the FDA required the manufacturers of Paxil to include a black box warning about the dangers of the drug.  This is the most serious type of warning the FDA imposes on the labeling of prescription drugs.  The warning stated that the drug “increased the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in short-term studies in children and adolescents with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders.” Already thousands of lawsuits have been filed against GlaxoSmithKline due to the harmful effects of the drug.  In 2009, a Philadelphia jury found the manufacturer culpable for failing to warn doctors treating pregnant woman, leading serious birth defects.  To date, billions of dollars have been paid to victims of Paxil

MILLIONS RECOVERED FOR OUR CLIENTS

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
