Zoloft Lawsuit Attorney
Serving Victims Nationwide
Zoloft is a drug used to treat depression. It was introduced by Pfizer in 1990
as a “safer” option than Prozac. In 1999, the FDA approved
the drug, and it quickly became the most popular U.S. antidepressant in
history. With approximately 30 million prescriptions written, it made
$2.6 billion the first year it was marketed and continued to gross billions more.
Zoloft is a part of the SSRI class of drugs, which is known to bring fewer
side effects than other antidepressants. Zoloft works by controlling serotonin
levels in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects sleep
and mood. Most doctors prescribe this drug to patients with major depressive
disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, OCD, or panic disorders.

Research has found drugs like Zoloft may increase risks of developing severe
birth defects by 600 percent. With over 100 million prescriptions written
in the United States, it makes sense millions of children may be negatively
affected by the medicine. To prove Pfizer is at fault, it is necessary
to show the drug manufacturer knew of Zoloft’s risks but continued
to make billions of dollars each year in profits without warning the public
of its dangers. Birth defects are serious and may cause great suffering
and years of expensive medical treatments. Innocent children should not
be forced to pay for the greed and negligence of a large pharmaceutical
entity. If you have given birth to a child with defects after taking Zoloft,
you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. For decades, theDoan Law Firm has dedicated its services to victims hurt in personal injury cases, especially

deal with the devastating burden of having a child that requires costly
medical care. Our team will fight for your rights to receive compensation
to cover doctor bills, pain, and suffering.
