Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a class of antidepressant medications that are prescribed to treat major depressive disorder (MDD) and various anxiety disorders. Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Prozac (fluoxetine) in 1987,1 various other SSRIs have been developed – and SSRIs have become on the most widely prescribed antidepressants in the U.S.
Despite their popularity and effectiveness, however, SSRIs have been linked to a number of serious side effects, the worst of which can be deadly.

Background on SSRIs: How They Work
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors work by increasing serotonin levels while limiting the reabsorption (or reuptake) of this neurotransmitter by certain cells. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (a chemical released by nerve cells) that is believed to control mood, as well as various biological processes, including digestion, sleep and sexual function.
Along with MDD, SSRIs are prescribed to treat conditions like (but not necessarily limited to):
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorders
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Panic disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Social anxiety disorder and social phobia.
While some SSRIs are approved for use in children who are as young as 8 or 12 years old, some may also be prescribed for use during pregnancy when the benefits outweigh the potential risks.
Common, milder side effects associated with SSRI use include (but may not be limited to):
- Dry mouth
- Sexual dysfunction
- Weight gain.
Generally, these side effects are more likely to arise with higher doses of SSRIs, and they dissipate as the body becomes accustomed to the drug or after use of the drug stops.
According to the latest data on SSRIs:2
- About 1 in 8 people over the age of 12 in the U.S. has taken an SSRI medication within the past month.
- About 25 percent of those who have taken an SSRI within the past month have been using the SSRI medication for at least 10 years.
- Females are two times more likely than males to take SSRIs.
- Since 1999, SSRI use in the U.S. has surged dramatically, increasing by nearly 65 percent.
Types of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Drugs
Many SSRI medications have been available in the U.S. since Prozac was first approved by the FDA. Some of these include:
- Celexa (citalopram), made by Forest Laboratories (Forest)
- Lexapro, (escitalopram), made by Forest
- Luvox (fluvoxamine), made by Solvay
- Paxil (paroxetine), made by GlaxoSmithKline
- Zoloft (sertraline), made by Pfizer, Inc.
Serious SSRI Side Effects & Complications
SSRI medications have been linked to some serious complications, the most severe of which can be life-threatening. These include (but may not be limited to):
- Birth defects and autism – Taking certain SSRIs during pregnancy can increase the risk of birth defects, including cleft palate, heart defects, respiratory distress and persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN). Some SSRIs can also reportedly increase the risk of autism in babies. A 2015 study found that taking certain SSRIs during pregnancy, specifically in the second or third trimester, could double the risk of autism in newborns.3
- Bleeding – When some SSRIs are taken with anticoagulants (like Pradaxa) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), uncontrolled bleeding events can occur. These events can include gastrointestinal bleeding, post-operative bleeding and/or intracranial bleeding.
- Bone fractures – SSRI drugs have been linked to loss of bone density, contributing to an increased risk of bone fractures, particularly among older patients.
- Serotonin syndrome – Characterized by tremors, muscle rigidity, fever, kidney failure and/or seizures, this condition can be fatal without treatment. Those who take high-dose SSRIs or who take more than one SSRI medication tend to have the greatest risk of this complication.
- Suicidal thoughts and actions – This complication is most likely to impact those who are starting a course of SSRI medication, as well as patients under 25 years old, those who have (or who have a family history of) bipolar disorder and those who have previously attempted suicide.
FDA Warnings about SSRIs
Over the past few decades, the FDA has issued a number of safety communications and warnings regarding SSRI drugs. Some of these include:
- A December 2011 Warning, alerting the public about the risks of birth defects when taking SSRIs during pregnancy4
- A May 2007 Safety Communication, notifying the public that the Agency was requiring SSRI manufacturers to include black box warnings (on drug labels and medication guides) regarding the risks of suicidal thoughts and behaviors5
- A July 2006 Warning, alerting the public to the risks of serotonin syndrome when taking SSRIs.6
SSRI Lawsuits & Multidistrict Litigation (MDL)
To date, thousands of lawsuits have been filed against the makers of SSRIs, alleging that:
- SSRI drugs caused severe, if not deadly, complications.
- SSRI drug makers failed to warn the public about the serious risks associated with these medications.
The growing number of these claims has spurred the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) to establish MDLs for some of these cases. Some of the SSRI MDLs include the:
- Zoloft MDL (MDL No. 2342), based in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania7
- Celexa and Lexapro MDL (MDL No. 2067), based in the U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts8
- Paxil MDL (MDL No. 1574), based in the U.S. District Court, Central District of California
- Prozac MDL (MDL No. 907), based in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana.
The intent behind these MDLs has been to facilitate pretrial proceedings while establishing consistent rulings across similar claims. Although some of these MDLs have been closed via settlements, others remain active and ongoing.
For new SSRI claims, plaintiffs may have a choice to join an ongoing MDL or to proceed with an individual case (outside of the MDL). A lawyer at the Amaro Law Firm can explain the best option for your claim, after reviewing the details and discussing your needs and objectives.

“Hello, my name is Matthew Scott. I live in Florida and after the BP oil spill occurred, the company I work for was asked to send representatives to aid in the security of the areas where the workers cleaning the oil spill were and their housing areas. (Tent Cities). I was there for five weeks working 12 hours on and 12 hours off. Even with all the precautions that were taken to prevent anything from happening I did feel it necessary to file a lawsuit against BP. The Amaro Law Firm handled my case and it was completed to my satisfaction. Without the help of paralegal Candace McCullough, I feel it would have been much harder for me.

“ The Amaro Law Firm is simply the best there is! I contacted them trying to find someone to handle my serious head-on motor vehicle accident where the defendant rammed into me at 35-40 mph. He was ticketed for the accident and I was left in my car, deployed airbag in my lap, with serious injuries that I still suffer from almost 4 years later with future joint replacement surgery yet to come. Felipe was my first contact (aside from the receptionist who was very friendly and professional) and he spent almost an hour patiently listening to me explain my case and the accident and each of my injuries. The next day, I met with Wendy Zagala, firm paralegal, who spent 3 hours (!) before the firm had even taken me on as a client, listening to every minute part of my story, from the horror of watching the defendant barrel into me to the terror of being back-boarded on a stretcher to the hospital to the frustration and disgust brought on in dealing with the defendant's insurance company's attorney and his lies and game playing. Tears, anger, frustration, and an ever-growing sense of hopelessness ... until I got to the Amaro Law Firm. Mr. Amaro's prior experience as a insurance company defense attorney assured me that he would know exactly how to handle my case. His vast experience, his integrity, his professionalism, his dedication, his support and compassion, his doggedness, his intelligence ... what more can one ask for in seeking a personal injury attorney? Nothing! ”Lori Khan

“As the owner of an accounting consulting services business, I have had the pleasure of working with the Amaro Firm for almost three years on Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement claims litigation. Our work together on the Deepwater Horizon spill claims process involves navigating an extensive and complex settlement agreement and representing victims of the Spill against numerous parties whom all have a vested interest in ensuring that those victims never receive economic remuneration. Throughout this arduous process, the Amaro Firm’s staff has consistently demonstrated themselves to be highly skilled, insightful, meticulous, and unrelenting in their pursuit of justice for their clients. David Miller is a model example of the exceptional attorneys working at the Amaro Firm. While collaborating directly with Mr. Miller for the past eighteen months on Deepwater Horizon Settlement claims, I have witnessed first-hand his excellent analytical skills and ability to quickly formulate an effective strategy for each individual client. Additionally, Mr. Miller’s keen eye for detail and exceptional writing skills make him an invaluable asset in virtually any legal setting. Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Miller is easily accessible at all times and is highly motivated to help each and every one of his clients and vendors succeed in any way he can. All of the aforementioned attributes are also exemplified by James Amaro, the Managing Partner of the firm. Mr. Amaro is a leader in his field and is an impeccable example of the intellect and unwavering persistence required of all attorneys involved in guiding clients through complex legal disputes. Due to the high degree of competence, skill, and overall professionalism exhibited by the Amaro Firm I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of expert counsel with their BP Economic or Medical claims, general insurance disputes or personal injury lawsuits, especially trucking accident litigation.
