Study Links Lyrica and Birth Defects

A study published in Neurology in May 2016 found that women who used Lyrica just before pregnancy or during the first trimester may triple the risk of major birth defects.

The researchers found that 6% of women who used Lyrica during the first six weeks of pregnancy had a baby with a major birth defect, based on data from 164 women. Out of 656 women who did not use Lyrica, only 2% had a baby with a birth defect.

Birth Defects Linked to Lyrica

  • Heart defects
  • Central nervous system defects (spina bifida, anencephaly, etc.)
  • Structural defects in organs

Lyrica and Pregnancy

Pfizer asks pregnant women on Lyrica to enroll in a study of birth defects, but they do not warn against taking Lyrica during pregnancy. Lyrica is a “Pregnancy Class C,” which means the risk in people is unknown but animal studies have shown evidence of birth defects.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not filing a Lyrica class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of children who were born with birth defects after being exposed to Lyrica.

About Class Actions

Every year, class action lawsuits help thousands of people get reimbursement for defective products. Plaintiffs in a class action consolidate their claims and seek compensation together. If compensation is awarded, everyone in the lawsuit shares the payout.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Class actions can have disadvantages for people with very serious injuries. Everyone is lumped together into one lawsuit, which means very few cases ever go to trial. Lawyers may accept a “low-ball” settlement or charge massive fees.

Our lawyers file individual lawsuits so we can focus our efforts on helping people with the most serious injuries — especially families facing enormous medical expenses to care for babies with birth defects.

There is no excuse for drug-makers who sell medications to pregnant women without warning about the risk of birth defects. If you were injured, we may be able to help you seek compensation for your child’s injury, past and future care, and more.
