Pfizer, is a major drug company that has had great success with products like Viagra and Zoloft, the widely used antidepressant. On the company’s Zoloft website, they provide information to consumers who maybe looking for more information. Under “Common Questions” they list things like:
- What is the most important information I should know about ZOLOFT?
- What is ZOLOFT?
- How long does it take to feel better with ZOLOFT?
- What are the most common adverse reactions of ZOLOFT?
- Can I drink alcohol while on ZOLOFT?
For the most part, the answers are succinct yet informative, until you come to:
What if I am pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or breast feeding?
The answer there is: “You should talk to your doctor.”
Presumably you would already be talking to a doctor before starting on antidepressants….
The fact is that Zoloft can cause birth defects. Medical studies show that Zoloft can double your risk for certain types of birth defects.
Babies born to mothers taking Zoloft, have been experienced congenital heart problems, pulmonary hypertension, malformed or under developed limbs and cranial issues. Families have and continue to file lawsuits against Pfizer.
