Overview

The antidepressant Wellbutrin (buproprion) belongs to a class of stimulant drugs known as aminoketones, which work by increasing norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain. It is used to treat major depression.

Wellbutrin and Pregnancy

Wellbutrin is in Pregnancy Class C, meaning that the risk of birth defects in humans is unknown. Studies in animals found evidence of birth defects and skeletal malformations in low doses, approximately equal to the equivalent dose in humans.

Wellbutrin Linked to Heart Defects

One study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology found that infants exposed to Wellbutrin in early pregnancy were 2.6-times more likely to be born with a left outflow tract heart defect.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our trial attorneys are not filing a Wellbutrin class action. Instead, we are focusing our efforts on individual lawsuits for children who were born with serious birth defects after exposure to Wellbutrin in pregnancy.

About Class Actions

Class action lawsuits are popular when a lot of people need to sue the same company for the same injury. Instead of everyone filing a lawsuit alone, plaintiffs consolidate their individual claims and collectively fight for compensation and justice.

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

The problem with class actions is that members may have to accept higher attorney’s fees or a blanket “low-ball” settlement offer, all without ever seeing their individual case taken to trial.

Wellbutrin and other antidepressants are associated with thousands of cases of birth defects, and hundreds of lawsuits have already been filed. However, they are not part of a class action — instead, they are centralized in mass-tort litigation in federal court.
