Infant Heart Defect Lawsuit Information

She may have been prescribed Zyban which is also known as Wellbutrin or generically as bupropion.

According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, women who used Zyban/Wellbutrin/bupropion during the first trimester of pregnancy have an increased risk of having a baby with a heart defect.

Zyban is a pregnancy Category C medication meaning they are more likely to have some complications for mother or fetus, and/or, there isn't enough research to draw conclusions about their safety.

These Category C medications come with the warning to be used only if the potential benefits outweigh the possible risks. Most prescription medications are classified in Category C.
