This case involves a twenty-eight-year-old female at the time of pregnancy who was prescribed venlafaxine, which resulted in numerous cognitive defects in her child. The woman was prescribed venlafaxine after she experienced depressive symptoms after the death of her father. She never contemplated suicide during this time and claimed that she was beginning to feel better once she became pregnant. Her psychiatrist recommended she stay on the anti-depressant because withdrawal could produce severe rebound depression. Shortly after the child was delivered, he began to have difficulties feeding. The baby was diagnosed with failure to thrive, requiring three months of hospitalization. Throughout the child’s life, several developmental milestones were delayed. The boy was unable to hold toys in his hand, crawl, and hold his head up independently. The child was also unable to walk and feed himself at the age of five. The boy also had very poor muscle tone and severe muscle weakness. The child’s preschool teacher also communicated that the boy had been exhibiting behavioral problems, including tantrums, excessive crying, and violence towards the other children. He was recommended to be enrolled at a specialized preschool for children with conduct disorders.
