Pristiq is a antidepressant of the serotonin-norepiephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). It is generically known as Desvenlafaxine, and it was developed and marketed by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, which is now a subsidiary of Pfizer. Pristiq uses desvenlafaxine, which is a synthetically produced version of venlafaxine, the generic name for Effexor. Like virtually all other antidepressants, Pristiq increases the risk of suicide and birth defects.
Pristiq was approved by the Food and Drug Admnistration in January 2007. However, Pristiq has not been approved in the European Union because the European Medecines Agency has been very skeptical about the presumed benefits of the drug. Indeed, they have noted that they have not found significant benefits of taking Pristiq. They have noted:
“However the efficacy results are far from impressive. The evidence with respect to long-term efficacy is considered lacking. The dose used in the randomised withdrawal study does not support long-term efficacy in the doses that are indicated in the SPC (50 mg).”
Pristiq adverse effects are serious. They include, but are not limited to, the following:
Like all other antidepressants, Pristiq has the potential to cause serious birth defects if it is taken by pregnant women. The possible birth defects can be very severe, and some of them might also turn out to be fatal. These birth defects include, but are not limited to, the following:
No expectant mother should have to have her happiness snatched away from her by giving birth to a child with extremely serious birth defects. Many of these birth defects require a life-long care plan, with all of the expenses of constant medical treatment. We believe that pharmaceutical companies ought to be responsible for covering these costs.
If your child has been born with birth defects or you or a loved one has been injured as a result of Pristiq, then a Pristiq law firm can help you secure the compensation that you deserve. Contact one of our unsafe drug lawyers today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.
