Millions of people suffer from depression to some degree during their lifetimes, and it’s only been during the past 20 years that medications designed to effectively treat depression and other psychological problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder have become available. One of the leading medications that’s been used to treat these problems is known as Zoloft, which is manufactured by Pfizer, a true corporate giant in the pharmaceutical industry.
Unfortunately, many reports regarding the development of Zoloft side effects have arisen, and some of these side effects have been serious and extremely dangerous. If you or someone you love has suffered in this regard, you need to seek the help of Zoloft side effects lawyers as soon as possible. Below you’ll find a brief overview of this issue.
Zoloft is a member of a class of medications that’s known as SSRI’s or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. These medications increase serotonin levels, which helps to keep those levels more constant. Many scientists believe that when someone suffers from varying levels of serotonin, they tend to endure sometimes wild mood swings. Clearly, this can exacerbate the problems encountered by people who are suffering from depression or PTSD.
Unfortunately, several different Zoloft side effects have been reported by people who have used this medication, and they tend to range in severity. Examples of alleged Zoloft side effects include:
In addition, pregnant women who have used Zoloft during the gestation period have also been showed by some studies to face a heightened risk of premature birth.
People who use Zoloft to help treat their symptoms of depression and PTSD depend n this medication to help them, and they also tend to trust their doctors who prescribe it for them. Therefore, given the problems they have already endured if or when they develop Zoloft side effects, the prospect of taking on a corporation as large as Pfizer can be too big of a challenge to encounter.
Therefore, if you or someone you love has been harmed as a result of using this drug, you need to seek the help of Zoloft side effects lawyers who have been holding pharmaceutical companies accountable for the harm they have caused with consumers for many years.
