As of 2011 thousands of Paxil lawsuits have been filed even though the drug is still being prescribed by most physicians as an antidepressant to treat obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety and post traumatic disorders. GlaxoSmithKline has also reported that more than 25% of its users are women of child bearing age between 18 years and 45 years. Reports and studies by Health Canada and Food and Drug Administration indicated that pregnant women who take Paxil during pregnancy were twice more likely to have a baby born with a heart defect than women who did not take Paxil. Also, according to the report, the women are also one and a half times more likely to give birth to a baby with a heart defect than women who take other antidepressants. Apart from heart defects, women who take Paxil during the first trimester and the last few months of pregnancy gave birth to premature babies who required more time for hospitalization and needed extra equipment to assist in breathing and feeding.

Some of the conditions that attract Paxil lawsuits for 2011 include heart defects like (ASD) and (VSD) which are atrial septal disorders and ventricular septal disorders. They are characterized by incomplete or poor formation of the heart wall that separates the left and right sides of the heart. There is also (PPHN) persistent pulmonary hypertension of the new born which results from the inability of a newborns circulatory system to adapt to breathing outside the womb. Teratology of Fallot also known as (TOF) is a disorder that is depicted by clubbing of fingers, bluish skin, failure to gain weight and general poor development in babies. Pulmonary stenosis (PS) is the poor formation of the pulmonary valve thereby causing less blood to reach the lungs. It’s manifested by chest pain, fatigue and bluish coloration of the skin. Other listed birth defects are persistent fetal circulation, cleft lip, skull deformations, gastro intestinal malformations and new born death.

The first Paxil lawsuits about birth defects involved a boy who had persistent pulmonary hypertension of the new born disease in 2006. Since then, over 600 Paxil lawsuits have been filed. As of 2011, successful Paxil lawsuits involved the family of a 3 year old boy who was compensated $3.5 million for having a range of heart defects. In this case, GlaxoSmithKline was accused of not disclosing all the risk information to the physician who prescribed the drug. Therefore the physician was not able to relay the same information to the mother.

As of 2011, most legal firms all over USA still offer legal advice on Paxil lawsuits on birth defects. The failure of the drug manufactures to indicate the side effects of Paxil during pregnancy and lactation has been the main contention in most Paxil lawsuits. Any parent or family member who has noted any form of child defects after birth as a result of regular use of Paxil prescriptions should be free to seek legal advice from a medical attorney who is experienced in drug injury cases. People are advised to work with counsels who have already participated in cases involving Paxil.
