Prozac® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA warns that Prozac® and other antidepressants could put you at higher risk for having suicidal thoughts.
A number of antidepressant medications have been forced to change warning labels after recurrent cases of side effects were documented. Our team members regularly review the favorable decisions handed down by the court systems for cases involving ineffective labels by drug manufacturers. These cases can involve the pharmaceutical company’s failure to explain contraindicated conditions, offer adequate directions, or to list known side effects.
Side Effects of Prozac® Use
Prozac® (fluoxetine) was the first in a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It’s thought that Prozac® works by inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin so that more of this chemical remains between the nerve cells in the brain. Possible side effects or negative patient outcomes include:
- Insomnia or Restlessness
- Sexual Side Effects
- Bleeding Gums
- Increased Risk of Suicidal Thought
- Serotonin Syndrome
NOTE: Serotonin syndrome is a rare but has life-threatening side effects that are a reaction by the body which results from too much serotonin and can cause death.
