Los Angeles Diflucan Birth Defect Attorneys

The FDA has recently warned against taking Diflucan while pregnant and moved Diflucan from a Class C to a Class D drug, asserting that taking Diflucan during pregnancy poses serious health risks for an unborn fetus.

What is Diflucan?

Diflucan is a drug manufactured by Pfizer and was approved by the FDA in 1990. Also known as Fluconazole, it is in a class of anti-fungal medications called triazoles. Diflucan is used to treat fungal infections, namely yeast infections and meningitis by slowing the growth of fungi that cause infection. It can also be used to treat more serious fungal infections that begin in the lungs and spread throughout the body; infections of the eye, prostate, skin, and nails; and prevent fungal infections in people likely to become infected because they have HIV, cancer, or have had a transplant surgery.

Birth Defects

Studies have shown that Diflucan is linked to serious health complications and birth defects for unborn children. Contact a pharmaceutical drug attorney if your child has experienced the following complications after using Diflucan during pregnancy:

  • Congenital heart disease
  • Cleft lip
  • Cleft palate
  • Flat head syndrome or other head deformity
  • Abnormal skull or face formation
  • Femoral bowing or bent thigh bones
  • Thin ribs and long bones
  • Muscle weakness or joint deformities

Legal Perspective

The serious birth defects linked to Diflucan have caused numerous people throughout the United States to file suit against Pfizer. The drug litigation attorneys at Arias, Ozzello & Gignac, LLP are currently investigating the claims against Diflucan and its serious complications. If your child has experienced any of these complications, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain, suffering, and other related injuries.
