Did Lexapro Cause Your Child’s Birth Defects?

November 17, 2011

Several medical studies demonstrate that exposure to antidepressants such Lexapro (escitalopram), collectively known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), measurably increase the probability that unborn children and newborns suffer from birth defects and child developmental issues such as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and neurological defects.


One study, for instance, concluded that mothers who took SSRIs during their pregnancy increased their child’s risk of developing neurological problems two-fold. Another study demonstrated that the dangerous ingredients contained in SSRIs may be transferred through breast milk.


Did your prescription to Lexapro or another SSRI contribute to your child’s birth defects or other developmental problems?
