Prozac Side Effects

Prozac And Autism

There are known side effects from taking Prozac a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) used to treat depression. Prozac problems may affect those who take it and also children whose mothers took Prozac during pregnancy. A study which appeared in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 2011 indicates the existence of a new Prozac problem. The study determined that children who were exposed to SSRIs early in pregnancy (first trimester) were at greater risk for autism.
