Antidepressants can cause negative side effects even if you are not pregnant. Imagine how many side effects and birth defects they could cause in those children whose mothers used to take such medications during pregnancy. This is not the first time I heard about something called paxil lawsuit. I know that the more I surf the Web, the more likely I am to hear about various birth defects caused by the medication. It saddens me to hear that so many women discover that their babies were born with birth defects such as heart conditions or lung problems. I wish somebody told those women not to take such medications during pregnancy.
