Zyban® Injury Lawyers
Zyban®—also known as bupropion—is a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI) that’s prescribed to help people stop smoking. Bupropion was first approved to treat depression under the name Wellbutrin®, and it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a smoking cessation aid in 1997.
The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology found that pregnant women who take medications containing bupropion during their first trimesters have increased risks of their children being born with birth defects. If you took Zyban and your child has birth defects, Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough is here for you. Just dial (800) 210-8503 or fill out a free initial consultation form to see how we can help you.
Types of Zyban® Birth Defects
Babies exposed to Zyban while in the womb have increased risks of developing serious birth defects affecting their hearts, such as:
Pulmonary Valve Stenosis
This condition refers to a disorder in which the blood flow in the right ventricle of the heart is blocked near the pulmonic valve. This can cause decreased blood flow to the lungs, which can result in shortness of breath, dizziness, or fainting during physical exertion. Children with this condition often require surgical treatment.
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
This condition refers to a defect in the heart that causes the left ventricle to be underdeveloped and incapable of pumping enough blood throughout the body. Babies with this condition may die without treatment, and surgery is often required soon after birth.
These conditions can be expensive to treat, and affected children may have physical symptoms for the rest of their lives. Don’t suffer alone—our law firm is here to help.
