Paxil Resource Web Site Launched by Williams Kherkher

Williams Kherkher launch a Paxil Resource web site in response to the prescription drug, paxil.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 26, 2007 -- In response to recent news regarding the prescription drug Paxil, Williams Kherkher of Houston, Texas has launched a complete Web site, whose URL is Paxil.

Williams Kherkher is led by Attorneys John Eddie Williams and Steve Kherkerk, and has 26 attorneys and over 120 support staff and has worked in the area of mass tort litigation since 1983.

Paxil is manufactured by SmithKline Beecham, and is part of the same drug "family" as Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox and Celexa, all of which are considered "SSRI's," which stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. Paxil's primary use is to help treat depression. Several lawsuits have resulted from the discovery of these problems, and one class action lawsuit, Hoormann v. SmithKlineBeecham, Case No.04-L-715 in the Third Judicial Circuit for the State of Illinois, recently settled for $63.8 million.

As early as 2005, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a warning on its Web site stating that Paxil was linked to the following side effects:

birth defects
loss of coordination
fast heart beat
increased body temperature
fast changes in blood pressure
overactive reflexes

Paxil has also been found to be addictive, and there have even been allegations that the company suppressed data that showed Paxil to be a high risk for children and adolescents.

In regards to the birth defects link, the women who are most at risk are those in their first three months of pregnancy, and the specific birth defect that's been found to be most prevalent is a heart defect, but the FDA also warned that no one should simply stop taking the drug without the involvement of their medical doctors.
