Jim Adler | The Tough, Smart Lawyer

Innocent families have become victims of giant drug companies in the form of birth defects caused by defective antidepressant drugs such as Wellbutrin. If that’s happened to your family, contact our law firm today about a Wellbutrin lawsuit to gain payments for losses due to defective drugs.

Also known by its generic name of bupropion, Wellbutrin is a prescription drug taken once daily to ease depression or provide assistance to those who wish to stop smoking.

It’s sold in tablets of 75 mg or 100mg. These are sold under the names Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin SR (sustained release) and also Wellbutrin XI (extended release).

Dangerous Wellbutrin Side Effects

When Wellbutrin is taken by a pregnant woman, her child can be subjected to a variety of dangerous Wellbutrin side effects. These include but are not limited to:

  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension, or PPHN
  • Intestinal Ailments
  • Cranial Deformities
  • Spina Bifida
  • Club Foot
  • Bone Malformations
  • Cleft Lip
  • Cleft Palate
  • Hernia
  • Undescended Testes
  • Blindness
  • Congenital Heart Lesions
  • Down’s Syndrome

Wellbutrin Antidepressants

Wellbutrin antidepressants are among a group of antidepressants known as SNRI drugs, or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. Such drugs can lower depression, which is experienced by one out of every 10 pregnant woman, but they also can cause considerable harm to babies.

One study has shown that using Wellbutrin during pregnancy can double the danger of a child being born with intestinal or cranial (skull) deformities. Another study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that pregnant women using antidepressant drugs raise the danger of their child being born with persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) by six-fold.

You may have heard about some of these Wellbutrin side effects on a Wellbutrin TV ad or a Wellbutrin TV commercial.
