Many Parents Of Children With Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome Believe It Was Caused By Paxil
When Paxil was initially released in 1992, patients weren't given any warningsor advised of any potential risks of the drug related to use during a pregnancy. Shortly after that release, some began to speculate on the possible harm Paxil could do to an unborn child and that led to studies regarding those risks. The results began to confirm these suspicions and it became clear that the potential for Paxil birth defects was substantial. After several more years of research, the makers of Paxil, GlaxoSmithKline, acknowledged these risks after the FDA took the step of reclassifying it as a Category D drug.
We now know that the most common of these conditions are congenital heart defects like hypoplastic left heart syndrome. This is a defect that occurs when the child's heart doesn't develop correctly and requires immediate medical attention. If hypoplastic left heart syndrome isn't treated quickly, it can be fatal. Fortunately, many children are able to overcome this condition and go on to live a healthy life. However, the families of a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome caused by Paxil are often left with more medical bills than they can afford.
Once the truth about Paxil became well known many women that had given birth to a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome now knew there was a likely cause of that condition. Many wanted to know how much responsibility GlaxoSmithKline had in this situation and that has resulted in a number of Paxil lawsuits being filed against the pharmaceutical company. The victims that have taken the step of filing a Paxil lawsuit have been able to reduce some of the burden they're facing as a result of these medical bills when they're able to win financial compensation from GlaxoSmithKline.
