When innocent babies suffer due to a defective drug, it’s time to take action. If a child in your family was born with a birth defect after the mother took antidepressant Celexa, we can take such action by filing a Celexa lawsuit on your behalf.
Celexa is among drugs known as SSRI, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Such SSRI drugs can decrease depression for pregnant women, 10 per cent of whom suffer from depression. But Celexa and other drugs also can cause horrible birth defects, as you may have heard about in a Celexa TV ad.
Celexa Birth Defects
Among Celexa birth defects are injuries to a child’s heart, lungs, spine, limbs, abdominal wall, skull and brain. Such birth defects caused by the defective drug may require surgery — or even multiple surgeries — and thus can be hugely expensive for an innocent family.
Our law firm can fight for your legal right to claim payments for such things as medical and hospital costs, as well as pain and suffering due to the defective drug.
What are possible Celexa birth defects?
Dangerous Celexa Side Effects
- Ventricular Septal Defects
- Congenital Heart Defects
- Skull Deformities
- Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension (PPHN)
- Atrial Septal Defects
- Spina Bifida
- Intestinal Malformations
- Bone Malformations
Such Celexa side effects are the responsibility of the defective drug’s negligent manufacturer, Forest Laboratories of New York. It’s worth noting that the Justice Department has charged Forest Laboratories with fraud for illegal marketing of Celexa and another antidepressant drug, Lexapro, to children.
Forest Laboratories has had as high as $2.8 billion single-year sales for Lexapro. In fact, in fiscal 2010 almost 90% of its revenues derived from just four drugs, including Celexa and Lexapro.
It’s vital that innocent victims of Forest Laboratories’ negligence take action to gain financial compensation for their defective drug losses, including their pain and suffering, as well as their medical and hospital costs, and any wages lost due to the problem.
Such economic recovery can come by means of a Celexa lawsuit wages by an experienced birth defect lawyer with our law firm.
Though no Celexa recall has been issued yet, the defective drug continues to menace innocent Americans. But Celexa lawsuits can fight back. A Celexa lawsuit in your family’s behalf can fight for economic recovery and justice for victims of the dangerous drug.
