A recent study from the Archive of General Psychiatry has linked SSRI antidepressant usage to autism. When an expectant mother takes an SSRI antidepressant, such as Paxil or Zoloft, during pregnancy, her child may be more at risk of developing autism. Mothers who took these drugs in the first trimester were found to be at the highest risk for developing autism.
Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should consult with a physician if they are currently taking, considering taking, or considering discontinuation of any SSRI drug, such as Paxil or Zoloft.
