Common Antidepressants Lead to Cerebral Bleeds – Attorney Michael Werner of Parker Waichman
Common antidepressants may lead you to suffer
a cerebral bleed. Hi. My name is Michael Werner. I’m an attorney here with Parker Waichman.
Today I want to provide you some important information regarding anti-depressant use.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, commonly referred to as SSRIs, are used to treat depression.
Some of the common SSRIs include Zoloft, Paxil, and Prozac. These drugs work on your serotonin
levels by modifying and regulating the levels inside your brain. Now for years, researchers
have concluded that they lead to certain side effects include spina bifida, heart defects,
and birth defects. However, recently, a Journal of Neurology concluded that SSRIs may lead
to a 40 or 50% increase in the risk of cerebral bleeding. It’s though that the connection
there is because SSRIs may invade the ability for the blood to clot. You likely have questions
about anti-depressant use. Here’s what I want you to do. Pick up the phone and call
me. The number is 1-800-800-9797. Again, my name is Michael Werner and thanks for watching.
