Arizona mothers need a voice for the Wellbutrin wrongs committed against babies with birth heart defects.
Even though the FDA has not addressed the Wellbutrin connection between first trimester pregnancy and heart birth defects does not mean that you or your family should wait to speak to a lawyer.
Other antidepressants like Paxil have been noticed by the Food & Drug Administration who determined that taking this particular SSRI drug may increase the risk of congenital heart malformations.
Unfortunately, Wellbutrin has not been put under the same investigative microscope yet for babies born with congenital heart defects while their mothers took the drug one month prior to becoming pregnant or within the first trimester of being pregnant.
According to a study recently released by the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, there was cause for alarm and most certainly monitoring of pregnant women who took Wellbutrin and had babies who suffered birth defects with left outflow problems of the heart.
Babies born with serious congenital heart defects have symptoms that frequently become evident during the first few hours, days, weeks, and months of their lives. Signs and symptoms may include: rapid breathing; pale gray or bluish skin color; swelling of legs, abdomen, and eye area; shortness of breath during feedings; and poor weight gain.
