Zoloft is in a class of prescription drugs known as SSRI, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. SSRIs are a form of pharmaceutical compounds that are known as anti-depressants. SSRIs are used to alleviate mood disorders and anxiety disorders, such as depression, panic disorders, paranoia, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Zoloft and other SSRIs work by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. Drugs that are classified as SSRIs are Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, Cymbalta and Lexapro. While SSRIs have been effective for those suffering from depression disorders, there are many negative Zoloft side-effects, including birth defects.
In 2005, the FDA issued a public health advisory about antidepressants, warning that SSRIs used during the first trimester increase the risk of heart birth defects. In a follow-up study performed in Denmark, Zoloft and Celexa were discovered to increase the chance of septal heart defects in unborn children. Septal heart defects can result in improper blood circulation or a hole between the hearts two upper chambers. Zoloft has now been classified as a pregnancy Category C drug, meaning that the risk of Zoloft birth defects is possible, but unknown.
