Warning on Paxil - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock


Warning on Paxil

A new warning about the popular anti-depressant Paxil. Federal regulators are warning now that the drug may be associated with birth defects.

The FDA says a new study has found that Paxil when taken during the first trimester of pregnancy led to an increased number of babies born with birth defects. The drug is already considered a 'category c' drug for pregnant women, meaning it hasn't been studied extensively yet to determine the effects on pregnancy.

Now, they know, and the warning is clear, don't take Paxil if you're pregnant. Paxil is made by Glaxosmithkline.
