Did an SSRI Hurt Your Newborn?
In the last several years, thousands of parents have come to realize that a connection may exist between their newborn’s birth defects and his or her mother’s prescription antidepressant. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, known as SSRIs, are a class of drug that may help a mother combat depression, but could also cause potentially severe developmental complications for the child.
Did you know that neonatal exposure to the active ingredients in SSRIs may be transferred via the umbilical cord or breast milk? The risk of harm is sufficiently great that the American Association of Pediatric has warned future parents and health care professionals about the possible injury to in utero children.
