Pristiq® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA has listed Pristiq® as a Pregnancy Category C drug which means animal reproduction studies show adverse effects, but adequate human studies have not been completed.
Several antidepressant medications have been cleared from pharmacies for a label warnings change after cases with dangerous side effects were reported. When we learn that a drug manufacturer has been accused of rushing a new product to market, our lawyers conduct a thorough investigative search to identify entities that have liability for any personal injuries acquired. Sometimes, the danger with a drug or medical device lies the inadequate warnings of serious risk factors to which the patient is exposed.
Side Effects of Pristiq® Use
Pristiq® (desvenlafaxine) is classified as a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). It is an antidepressant which attempts to maintain mental balance by increasing serotonin and norepinephrine output in the brain. Possible side effects or negative patient outcomes include:

NOTE: Under FDA Guidelines, it is unknown whether a category C drug can cause fetal harm when taken by pregnant women. However, the FDA recommends specific cautions be taken.
