Why is it that Paxil is always linked to birth defects?
Asked by Suzan Big 1 year ago.

There are plenty of things that are associated with birth defects. That is the reason why having a health baby is considered a joyous occasion. Edit: Ah...a spammer about a paxil/birth defects lawsuit. That explains three questions about it in a few minutes. Answered by Pearlene Feichter 1 year ago.

Because paxil is not a safe med to take at all, it has bad side affects and makes you want to sleep all day, and if you take it for a while they say you're better off taking heroin because the withdrawals are just as bad, and believe me i've seen it. Answered by Imelda Kedley 1 year ago.


Discontinued medications you would like to see on the market?
need to know for a college project! please help! Asked by Kylee Lehner 1 year ago.

Bendectin would be a nice re-addition to the US market. It was a very effective drug to treat morning sickness, and is still available in the UK and Canada. Unfortunately it was removed from the US market following numerous suits against the company, combined with typical tabloid hysteria. Now we are left with having to treat serious morning sickness with drugs which are known to have side effects, instead of a drug which did not. Now if you want to get the same benefit, you'd have to pull a homemade alchemy experiment. It can be done, but not nearly as easily. Answered by Alvina Cron 1 year ago.

could have been promethazine or an anti-emetic medicine to stop the vomiting such as Antihistamines (H1 histamine receptor antagonists), effective in many conditions, including motion sickness, morning sickness in pregnancy, and to combat opiate nausea. Cyclizine Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) Dimenhydrinate (Gravol, Dramamine) Meclizine (Bonine, Antivert) Promethazine (Pentazine, Phenergan, Promacot) Promethazine can be administered via a rectal suppository for adults and children over 2 years of age. Hydroxyzine icant tell you if those where blue pills in the 75 but the name might remind her something. take good care emy . in cases of pregnancy always talk to your doctor or phanarmacist before taking those medecin. they can have serious side effects on the baby.

The drug was called Bendectin. It was never shown to cause birth defects, but was used in pregnant women, so everyone blamed any birth defect on the drug. It was never banned. It was taken off the market by the company because of lawsuits. Given enough information, you can eventually prove that a drug can cause birth defects, but you cannot prove that it never will. You cannot prove a universal negative. Bendectin was the anti-nausea drug from the 70's and 80's. Thalidomide was the tranquilizer from the 60's. Answered by Eustolia Masseria 1 year ago.

I'm pretty sure it's Thalidomide Have a google to see if that's the one Hope that helps; good luck with your project Answered by Shemeka Bresse 1 year ago.

It's called 'Thalidomide.' I happen to have a friend who was a victim of this. (Please see the link below . . .) Answered by Shae Kovac 1 year ago.


Unisom and Phenagrn together?
I'm pg and sick. Insomina is kicking my butt and I was wondering if anyone knew if you can take the unisom B6 combo along with a phenagrn to help with nausea and sleep. Thanks Asked by Tambra Morini 1 year ago.

That was the formulation for Bendectin, a drug for hyperemesis gravidarum that was taken off the market because the company got tired of fighting lawsuits from mothers who sued when their babies turned out to have reduced limbs. The same company that made bendectin made thalidomide. Unisom or doxylamine is an antihistimine. Men are told not to take this drug because of its teratogenicity. I am only going to suggest that you try to use ginger crystals or something less questionable. I hope your pregnancy progresses with less stress. B6, pyrodoxine hydrochloride, has been known to help with morning sickness because it helps the body metabolize proteins. Good luck. I hope you feel better very soon.
