Zoloft (Sertraline) Information
Zoloft (sertraline) is among the most commonly prescribed antidepressants in the world. Millions of Zoloft prescriptions have been written to control the symptoms of depression. Zoloft, along with other antidepressants in its class, has been linked to serious birth defects in infants who are exposed to the medication during fetal development.
The antidepressant Zoloft has been linked to an increase in the risk of certain birth defects, including heart defects such as atrial septal defects; a lung disorder called persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN); abdominal defects including a condition called omphalocele in which the intestines and organs stick out through the belly button; and a skull defect called craniosynostosis, among others.
