Luvox is the brand name for the SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) drug fluvoxamine, a class of antidepressants similar to Prozac and Paxil. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1994 and has been used by approximately 30 million people.
Most people do not doubt the ability of Luvox and other SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) drugs to help with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, depression and anxiety. However, there is also concern about severe Luvox Side Effects like serious birth defects that have been linked to the drug.
Experts have now linked the chemicals in Luvox and similar SSRI depression medications with severe birth defects including heart defects, lung defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborns (PPHN) and certain facial and skeletal malformations like cleft palate.
Although prior studies linked SSRI drugs like Luvox to suicidal thoughts and self-mutilation, these most recent Luvox side effects could have as much or more of an effect on women taking the drug and their families.
If you took Luvox before or during pregnancy and have given birth to a child with heart, lung, abdominal or skeletal birth defects, contact us immediately to speak with a Luvox Side Effects Lawyer about your legal options. You may be entitled to substantial compensation for your child’s condition.
Experts fear that many of the 30 million adults and teenage patients who have taken Luvox since 1994 were women who may have taken the drug during pregnancy without knowing the risks and unknowingly putting their children at risk.
Parents dealing with the devastating effects of a child’s severe birth defect often do not even suspect that the medication they were prescribed years earlier may be the cause of their child’s condition, or that legal help is available.
