What Is Pulmonary Hypertension?

Posted on April 26th, 2011 No Comments

The prescription anxiety drug Zoloft has been linked to a number of birth defects, including persistent pulmonary hypertension.

Persistent pulmonary hypertension is one of many birth defects associated with Zoloft-use while pregnant. The condition is caused by the small arteries of the lung becoming narrowed, meaning they cannot carry as much blood. As a result, high blood pressure builds up in the arteries of the lungs, making the right side of the heart work harder than normal. Pulmonary hypertension is characterized by a number of symptoms, including:

–          Heart palpitations

–          Ankle and leg swelling

–          Cyanosis

–          Chest Pain or pressure

–          Fatigue

–          Weakness

–          Dizziness or fainting spells

If your child has suffered a birth defect after you were prescribed Zoloft while pregnant, please contact the Zoloft Birth Defect Lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810.
