Symbyax antidepressant and heart birth defects

Symbyax Antidepressant Birth Defects Lawsuit Information

Women should notify their doctor if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during Symbyax therapy.

Symbyax may be associated with birth defects, specifically, congenital heart defects, Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), abdominal defects, and cranial defects.

Women who breast-feed should not do so while taking Symbyax.

Symbyax is in the drug pregnancy category C meaning that in studies with animals, there were fetal problems. As with most drugs there are no well-controlled Symbyax studies for pregnant women because that would be unethical.

Symbyax should be used during pregnancy only if potential benefits justify potential risks to the fetus.
