Is the Most Prescribed Antidepressant Dangerous for Your Child?

At roughly 29 million prescriptions per year, Zoloft (sertraline) has historically been the most prescribed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) on the U.S. market. And yet, for many women and their children, Zoloft may do more harm than good.


Medical studies have shown that women who take Zoloft while pregnant expose their child to roughly 1/3 of the parental dosage. Are there negative consequences to this exposure? For many children, the answer is yes. Birth defects associated with prenatal exposure to Zoloft include heart, lung, limb reduction defects.
