Paxil Side Effects
Paxil side effects are probably not something you bring up at a baby shower.
But I think it is important to know about the possibility of them.
When you take a medecin or drug during pregnancy that has been prescribed for you, you trust that it will do what you are told it will do, and not cause harm to you or your unborn baby.
Unfortunately this is not always the case.
As an example, the drug Paxil has been found in some cases to cause birth defects in babies whose mothers took it while pregnant.

Studies Done Recently
Have linked Paxil to an increased risk of birth defects, particularly heart defects, if taken during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Some of these defects are mild and resolve without intervention, but some may be quite serious.
It has also been suggested that exposure to SSRIs (definition: (SSRIs) are a fairly new class of antidepressants
which if taken during late pregnancy may increase the risk of persistent pulmonary hypertension, a serious lung disorder, in a newborn.
Probably and hopefully, you and your baby will not be affected by any Paxil side effects, but if on the slight chance that you are, you need to know you can receive compensation for any Paxil side effects that you or your baby might sustain.
