Rottenstein Law Group Commissions and Releases Zoloft Infographic to Educate Public about the Drug’s History, Dangers
(New York, NY, December 1, 2011) The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims stemming from the severe side effects of the antidepressant drug Zoloft, has commissioned and released a Zoloft infographic to provide the public with valuable information about the drug’s history and present dangers.
The infographic provides very easy-to-understand facts about the ailments Zoloft is prescribed for, a timeline of significant events in the drug’s history, the most commonly experienced adverse side effects and information about the birth defects Zoloft has been connected to by recent medical research.
Studies have linked Zoloft to a number of birth defects in babies born to mothers who took the drug while pregnant. These include: clubbed foot; cleft lip/palate; delayed development; persistent pulmonary hypertension; gastrointestinal defects; heart defects; skull defects; brain/spinal cord defects. In addition, Zoloft can cause premature or miscarriage. Zoloft has also been known to cause withdrawal symptoms immediately after birth in infants who were exposed to the drug in utero. Further, an article published in the Archives of General Psychiatry reported “an elevated risk of autism in children whose mothers took a popular type of antidepressant during the year before delivery.” These drugs, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), include Zoloft, Prozac, Celexa and Lexapro.
The Rottenstein Law Group’s Zoloft Birth Defects Information Center contains social media features that allow for easy sharing on sites like Facebook and Twitter, which enables visitors to spread the word about the potential dangers associated with Zoloft. The firm encourages visitors to link to its sites from their own blogs and Web sites to spread information about dangerous drugs and defective medical devices.
