Paxil birth defects (part 2)

As a Corpus Christi and Texas Paxil birth defects attorney, I am following the various problems with this medication. In addition to heart problems, there are other issues which are found in babies whose mothers used Paxil. These may include tremors, low blood sugar, breathing problems, seizures, and irritability.

In the usual case, these problems happen most likely in the first trimester. However, In July of 2006, the Food & Drug Administration warned that there was a risk of PPHN in babies when Paxil was taken after the 20th week of pregnancy. This warning occurred after a study was published earlier in the year by the New England Journal of Medicine.
