Kiker v. GlaxoSmithKline (Paxil Birth Defects)
Kathryn Kiker claims that her child was born in 2001 with serious respiratory and cardiovascular defects as a result of her taking the antidepressant Paxil during her pregnancy. Kiker claims that GlaxoSmithKline knew that Paxil was associated with a significantly increased risk of cardiac birth defects but nevertheless promoted Paxil as being a safer alternative for pregnant women.
