Birth Defects, Multiple Surgeries, and Lexapro

July 5, 2012

Every year, tragedy strikes hundreds of American families in the form of serious, painful, and potentially life-threatening birth defects. In large cities and rural towns, expecting mothers who take a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) like Lexapro (escitalopram) for their diagnosed depression belatedly discover that SSRIs may help them confront depression, but they also impose serious risks to the child developing inside of them. In many cases, SSRI newborns are born with heart defects that require multiple surgeries that are risky and potentially life threatening.


If this sounds all too familiar with you because your family is reeling from the effects of an SSRI birth defect, you should talk to the lawyers at the Dallas firm of Fears Nachawati. With years of experience and dedicated expertise, we’re prepared to represent the unique and complex claims of SSRI victims and their families.
