Are There Side Effects to Your Celexa Prescription?

February 8, 2012

Sadly, this is a question that many patients don’t ask until it’s too late. In numerous studies, medical researchers have found that the side effects to Celexa (citalopram) for a pregnant woman can include serious birth defects to her unborn child. Persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), a serious lung condition, and life-threatening heart defects are just two of the types of birth defects caused by Celexa (citalopram) and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors that women take during pregnancy.


In many cases, these birth defects require surgical or long-term medical treatments for infants and young children. For both the infant and the family, addressing these medical conditions can have serious consequences, including physical pain and suffering, emotional trauma, significant financial expense, and lost time and consortium.


Are you concerned that your newborn might be suffering as a result of your prescription to Celexa (citalopram)? It’s a question that many mothers ask, but don’t get a sufficient answer. If this is something that you’ve been wondering, you should contact our experts and legal professionals at the law firm of Fears Nachawati.
