Zoloft belongs to a class of antidepressants that are one of the most popular medications for depression, stress, anxiety and panic and obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD). Zoloft was developed and manufactured by Pfizer in the early 1990’s to combat the ills of depressive living and is the most prescribed drug for the condition to date. It has lesser side effects than most antidepressants. However, the use of Zoloft in pregnant women is highly discouraged as the drug has worsening effects on the fetus during its development stage, and once the baby is born, he or she may display a number of disorders or handicaps, especially heart defects. Some of the conditions that the newborn may exhibit include the following:
- Ventrical Septal Defect (VSD)
