Did Lexapro Cause Your Child’s Birth Defect?

August 30, 2012

Sadly, thousands of women discover every year that Lexapro (escitalopram), the medication on which they depend to treat their depression, has an unusual set of potential side effects: harming the fetus growing inside pregnant patients. In fact, several medical studies have determined that Lexapro and other antidepressants, collectively known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), increase the likelihood that an infant will be born with potentially serious lung, heart, or developmental conditions.
