What Mothers Are Finding Out About Paxil

By: johnsonlawgroup
Does your son or daughter take Paxil? Has your son or daughter been hurt, injured, harmed, or even died as a result of taking Paxil? If so, it is time that you find out what mothers are starting to find out about the antidepressant drug called Paxil.

Today, mothers are finding out that Paxil was never intended to be used as an antidepressant in children under the age of eighteen years old. There are many lawsuits against the GlaxoSmithKline Company, the manufacturers of Paxil; because it is believed that they may have hidden or misrepresented vital information about the possible side effects that Paxil could have on children under the age of eighteen years old. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never approved the use of Paxil among children and has posted several warnings that the use of Paxil could result in increased suicidal and violent thoughts, cardiac problems, respiratory problems, and other side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, dry mouth, tremors, and insomnia in children and it could have even more drastic effects on mothers-to-be. Research has proven and shown that mothers who took Paxil during their pregnancy had a higher risk of cardiac, respiratory, and other birth defects. The FDA reported that mothers who took Paxil during the first trimester (the first 12 weeks) of the pregnancy increased the risk by double of experiencing some form of birth defect or complication as a result of taking the drug.

Many doctors do not tell their patients that the use of Paxil was never recommended for children or pregnant mothers. Many doctors prescribe Paxil by using their professional judgment. Therefore, if your son or daughter is taking or has been given a prescription for Paxil by a doctor, it is a good idea to contact a Paxil lawyer to discuss the possible problems that may arise. There are Paxil lawyers available to explain the effects of Paxil on some patients and what your legal rights are in regards to the complications resulting from the use of this medication.

Many mothers are finding this information out too late. So, be wise. Investigate your child's Paxil medication before it is too late. There are other antidepressant medications that are more effective and safer for children. Paxil is not recommended for children under the age of eighteen, so think twice before your child becomes a Paxil victim. If you have any questions, contact a Paxil Lawyer today. It is better to be safe, than sorry.
