Zoloft Birth Defects: Free Consultation with a Lawyer

A number of lawsuits have been filed against Pfizer Inc. for compensation for birth defects allegedly caused by Zoloft, an antidepressant. The plaintiffs (people suing) allege that Zoloft causes birth defects when taken during pregnancy.

Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant. Medical research has shown that SSRI antidepressants taken during pregnancy can cause premature birth, seizures, heart malformations and other birth defects.

Federal lawsuits against Pfizer have been consolidated (for pretrial purposes only) in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judge Cynthia M. Rufe presiding (In Re:  Zoloft Products Liability Litigation, MDL Docket No. 2342, JPMDL).  This centralization of federal lawsuits filed throughout the United States was done to eliminate duplicative discovery, prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings and conserve the resources of the parties and the judiciary.

Lawsuits have also been filed in state court and are not part of the Zoloft MDL.
