Columbus, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/13/2013 -- Women whose children suffered birth defects after taking the drug Effexor (venlafaxine) during their pregnancy will benefit from the recent launch of the Effexor Birth Defects News website, http://www.effexorbirthdefectsnews.com/ , aimed to help families in their search for justice.
EffexorBirthDefectsNews.com, a consumer information website, has recently introduced a new user-friendly design that will help victims determine if they qualify to file an Effexor lawsuit and demand legal compensation from the drug’s manufacturer.
Many women, who were prescribed Effexor to help them cope with depression during their pregnancy, think that their child is inflicted with Effexor birth defects yet do not know the proper legal steps to pursue.
The new website provides a simple and easy to understand online form that anyone who wishes to have their case evaluated can fill up. The information will then be sent and reviewed by a legal representative who will then recommend further actions.
Should the plaintiff have a strong legal case, a knowledgeable Effexor lawyer will then contact them to help them handle any claims, such as compensation for medical bills, lost income and other past and future expenses caused by Effexor birth defects.
According to the website’s owner, Glendal Bass: “A U.S. epidemiological study from the Center for Disease Control gathered data on 19,000 women who took Effexor for at least a month before conception and during the first trimester of pregnancy.
The study encompassed a 10 year period between 1997 and 2007 and the women in the study gave birth to infants with at least one of 30 birth defects. The control group for this study included over 8000 women who did not take antidepressants during pregnancy.
After reviewing evidence gathered for the study, researchers concluded that there was a statistically significant increase in the risk of specific congenital defects in the infants of women who took Effexor from one month before conception through the first three months of pregnancy.”
Also, according to popular medical and health information website **WebMD.com, Effexor should be used only when clearly needed, as it may harm an unborn baby.
Medical professionals say that babies born to mothers who have used this drug throughout the last 3 months of pregnancy may infrequently develop withdrawal symptoms such as feeding/breathing difficulties, muscle stiffness, seizures or continuous crying.
The new website also has the latest news regarding Effexor and birth defects, a dedicated Frequently Asked Questions page to help out anyone who wants to know more about Effexor and how they can file a lawsuit should they have a strong legal case.
Victims of the antidepressant drug Effexor who suffered its negative health side effects will benefit from the information found at this new website. For more information, visit the website today at www.effexorbirthdefectsnews.com or you may contact their representative at 1-800-918-7302.
