The U.S. Food & Drug Administration warned patients that taking Zoloft® or any other SSRI during pregnancy is directly linked to some Congenital Heart Defects. These birth defects were many times more likely to occur in women who have taken it during pregnancy. The most common defects are Heart Defects, Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension and Abdominal & Cranial birth defects. The heart defects were, in most cases, Atrial Septal Defects (ASD) and Ventricular Septal Defects (VSD), which are characterized by holes in the walls of the chambers of the heart. Heart-related birth defects range in severity from minor, which may resolve without treatment, to severe conditions, which usually require surgery.
