Prescription drugs have the power to heal, but as it's now recognized, these same drugs have the power to cause tremendous pain for certain people, and one such example of this is with respect to the prescription drug Paxil (Paroxetine). Several years ago, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning against Paxil as it had been concluded that this seemingly harmless drug could in fact increase the risk for serious birth defects if taken during pregnancy.
Tetralogy of fallot and spina bifida are just a couple of the birth defects which have been experienced by children whose mothers took Paxil during pregnancy, and although the dangers of Paxil are now well known, the information surrounding the potential dangers of the drug hadn't been known by the public when Paxil was released (in the early 1990s). Undoubtedly, since the dangers of Paxil had not been known, it's possible that a large number of women in America took Paxil while pregnant, and thus, are now raising children with serious birth defects which could be blamed on Paxil. The possibility of having suffered as a result of a prescription drug can be painful for a family to bear, but for some families, legal help from a Paxil lawyer has been sought as at least a sense of justice for all of the suffering caused could still be obtained via legal action.
Consult with a Paxil lawyer if there's a chance that Paxil caused your family's pain! If you suspect that Paxil is to blame for your son or daughter's birth defect, then a Paxil lawyer will be able to help your family uncover the truth surrounding whether or not Paxil and the negligence of GlaxoSmithKline (Paxil's manufacturer) are truly to blame for your family's misery.
Going through with litigation is obviously not an easy or stress-free process, but for many families who have been harmed by the negligence of prescription drug companies, litigation was the only way in which justice could be served. Without a doubt, if your family feels that Paxil may have caused your child's defect, then now is the time to take action.
