Across the United States, a substantial number of physicians have prescribed the drug Prozac to individuals, including pregnant women, for the treatment of depression. Prozac, also known by its generic name, Fluoxetine, is part of a class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs. SSRIs have been linked to causing suicidal thoughts and serious birth defects. The FDA warns patients that taking Prozac in combination with the antibacterial agent linezolid can cause serious central nervous system toxicity. Eli Lilly & Company has paid millions to victims across the nation for their injuries caused by the company's drug Prozac. If you took the drug Prozac and suffered severe side effects or gave birth to an infant born with a birth defect, consult with a Prozac injury attorney immediately to learn your legal rights. You may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries.
