Celexa Lawsuit Attorney

In 1988, Forest Laboratories, Inc.’s Celexa was FDA approved. As its popularity grew, it became the top prescribed antidepressant in 13 countries. It is used to improve a patient’s energy levels and feelings of well-being. Celexa is part of the serotonin inhibitor family and works by restoring the balance of serotonin in the brain. It was introduced as a cure for depression and other mood disorders.

Side Effects of Celexa

As with any prescription medication, Celexa can bring some negative side effects. It has been found to increase suicidal thoughts and actions, especially in young patients. Individuals taking this drug may experience violent or aggressive behavior and panic attacks as well. Besides emotional issues, Celexa may also bring a change in heart activity. Certain users reported chest pain, shortness of breath, and changes in heart rate. In 2011, the FDA issued warnings this medication should not be prescribed in doses over 40 mg per day. At high levels, the risk of developing heart problems increases. In rare cases, it is possible to suffer serotonin syndrome, a potentially fatal disorder. It occurs when serotonin levels spike in the brain. Symptoms include agitation, muscle twitching, fever, nausea, stiff muscles, and a change in blood pressure. Allergic reactions may include breathing difficulties, facial swelling, hives, and joint pain. When any of these side effects occur, it is essential to seek immediate medical attention.

Depression is extremely common and affects millions of women. Unfortunately, it does not stop during pregnancy. To lower anxiety, a pregnant woman may take Celexa. This drug dissolves in the bloodstream and passes through the placenta to the developing embryo. This means it reaches the baby’s blood and brain, which has a negative impact on fetal development.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
