There is no way to say for certain and from the searching I did for information, it appears that the subject is still under debate, no studies have been completely definitive.

However, in the drug monograph for pregnant or nursing mothers, it is listed that Prozac is suspected of causing Neonatal Adaptation Syndrome.

This, however, would not apply to children who are 3 to 4 years old when they start showing signs of something, this is for infants.

Does anyone else have anything to post on this?

I am curious about the side effects of Prozac on the unborn child. I took it through my pregnancy 9 years ago and my doctor at that time said no transference to the child.Now I am hearing a way different story.....it even STATES it on my prescription NOW! My son had motor skill probelms and seizures and hearing loss....yet none of my other 3 children had anything like that.........I never took it with them.Anyone know the side effects?
