In 2005, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned doctors about a study showing that babies born to women who took Paxil during the first trimester of pregnancy had a higher rate of major birth defects. The study, which involved 3,500 pregnant women, showed that those on Paxil were twice as likely to have a child with defects than women on other antidepressants.
The FDA put out a statement warning that “[h]ealthcare professionals are advised to carefully weigh the potential risks and benefits of using [Paxil] in women during pregnancy and to discuss these findings as well as treatment alternatives with their patients.”
At least 600 cases have been filed alleging that Paxil is responsible for congenital birth defects. GSK has also paid approximately $1 billion in settlements of Paxil-related cases not involving birth defects.
