It’s estimated that about 10% of Americans are on antidepressants at any given time. Many Americans may take these drugs without ever having been diagnosed with depression or anxiety disorders.
Doctors have been known to prescribe Zoloft, Lexapro or Prozac to treat insomnia, moodiness or relationship problems. This means millions of people taking these drugs are exposed to harmful side effects when they could be treated with counseling or psychotherapy.
Zoloft, for example, increases the risk of birth defects when taken by pregnant women and has been responsible for children being born with heart problem or malformed limbs.
If you or a loved one have taken Zoloft while pregnant, then please contact us today.
