Zoloft Birth Defects: Peripheral Artery Disease

Posted on June 22nd, 2011 No Comments

The prescription antidepressant drug Zoloft has recently been linked to a number of serious birth defects, including peripheral artery disease.

Peripheral artery disease is a circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs.  The disease is often caused by atherosclerosis, fatty deposits or plaques that build up in the artery walls and reduce blood flow.

Commonly atherosclerosis affects the heart, but can also interfere with blood flow with arteries throughout the body. Extremities, usually the legs, don’t receive enough blood flow, which causes a variety of complications, including:

–          Painful cramping of the calf muscles

–          Leg numbness

–          Sores on the extremities

–          Hair loss

–          Skin discoloration

–          Erectile dysfunction later in life.

If you used Zoloft while pregnant and your child was born with a birth defect, such as peripheral artery disease, please contact the Zoloft Attorneys of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810.
