What is Pristiq?

Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) is an serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) antidepressant. It is a chemical cousin to Effexor (venlafaxine). Both are Pregnancy Category C medications, which means the FDA believes they could potentially cause a birth defect, but the risk is inconclusive.

Pristiq Class Action Lawsuit Information

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our attorneys are not filing a Pristiq class action. There are hundreds of lawsuits involving antidepressants and birth defects, but these are not part of a class action. Instead, they are individual lawsuits that have been centralized in a federal court. Over 50 lawsuits involving Effexor are located in a multi-district litigation (MDL No. 2458) in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Over 500 lawsuits involving Zoloft are pending in the same court.

Our lawyers are reviewing claims involving:

  • Heart defects
  • Atrial septal defect (ASD)
  • Ventricular septal defect (VSD)
  • Patent foramen ovale (PFO)
  • Coarctation of the aorta
  • Gastroschisis
  • Omphalocele
  • Hypoplastic lungs
  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
  • Cleft palate
  • And more

About Class Actions

Class actions have advantages in certain circumstances — for example, when thousands of workers are systematically denied wages. It wouldn’t make financial sense for each person to file a lawsuit alone, but by joining together, plaintiffs can collectively argue for compensation.

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

The problem with class actions is that they can have disadvantages for plaintiffs with severe injuries. Members are often forced to accept higher attorneys’ fees or a blanket “low-ball settlement.” Even if compensation is awarded in a class action, it must be divided among all the members of the class action.

Our trial attorneys file individual lawsuits because we believe each child who was injured by Pristiq deserves personal legal representation. We always review new cases for free. In addition, we typically work on contingency-fee agreements. Contact us today for more information.
