Please answer as soon as possible. Thank you sovery much, Ethel Kester

Thank you for your query Ethel.
I want to put your mind at ease right away. Neither Paxil or Zoloft could have anything to do with your sons problems. Paxil is Diazepam , has been around a long time, and is often used in pregnancy and labour . Zoloft is a newer drug , and although not tested during pregnancy, there have been cases recorded where ladies have remained on the drug during pregnancy , without any documented problems with the babies.
I trust this information puts your mind at ease.
