Antidepressants have been one of the drugs that have caused severe birth defects. This has been one of the major issues of women taking antidepressants while they are pregnant. You can read all bout it at http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com/z... .

FDA announces? Doesn't the FDA study their safety studies and licence them for use? Now they are warning us after they cause damage? Something wrong with this picture.
Definitely something wrong. Drug trials only last a maximum of 8 weeks so the market place is effectively the real trial.
You only need 2 or 3 positive trials to get a drug approved, regardless of how many negative trials there are: so if you do a hundred trials you only need 2 with a positive outcome.
Also many ex pharmaceutical executives hold jobs at the FDA, not to mention, direct lobbying of the FDA by pharmaceutical companies.
Old drugs are safer than the new ones as their trial has been longer running; remember it took 20 years to admit benzos were addictive.

This is true. Many accurate studies show that Paxil can cause birth defects by Paxil intake of the mother while pregnant and through breastfeeding. This has been the center of compensatory claims and lawsuits.

I wish there are substitutes for these drugs without the side effects. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fo...

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
