Although selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Zoloft are widely prescribed to treat depression, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder, a number of serious side effects and risks have come to light involving these medications. Hundreds of lawsuits have already been filed as plaintiffs take action against the makers of SSRI drugs for these dangerous unexpected side effects, but even as litigation is pending, new problems are arising.
One new study presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research demonstrates that the SSRI fracture risk among post-menopausal women exceeds the fracture risk associated with corticosteroids and PPIs. Older women who use SSRI drugs and who suffer a fracture should consider a dangerous drug lawsuit in San Antonio to hold drug makers responsible for injuries.
