The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims for injuries and birth defects allegedly caused by selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressants (SSRIs) including Zoloft, is helping to publicize the results of a study showing an increased mortality rate during the perioperative period for patients who are on an SSRI.

A study reported online in JAMA Internal Medicine showed that patients who took SSRIs while they were hospitalized for surgery had 20% higher odds of dying in the hospital after that surgery compared with all other patients, according to an April 29, 2013, MedPage Today article.* “Bleeds and early readmission to the hospital also occurred more often among those patients,” the publication reported.

The Rottenstein Law Group urges anyone who believes they–or their child–may have been harmed by Zoloft to contact us as soon as possible. The firm´s Zoloft Lawsuit Information Center contains social media features that allow for easy sharing on sites like Facebook and Twitter, which enables visitors to spread the word about the potential dangers associated with Zoloft.
