Zoloft was approved by the FDA in 1991 and has been used by millions of Americans for anxiety and depression. The FDA has increased its warning for Zoloft because it may be associated with birth defects, specifically, congenital heart defects, Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), abdominal and cranial defects.
More About Zoloft
Zoloft is used by millions of Americans to treat depression. More specifically, pregnant women have been prescribed Zoloft to help with the anxiety surrounding their pregnancy. A fetus is at great risk of developing a birth defect when using Zoloft or other SSRI antidepressants.
Studies have shown that babies born to mothers who took Zoloft were more likely to develop Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), than babies born to mothers who did not take Zoloft during pregnancy.
