Did Lexapro Cause Your Child’s Neonatal Withdrawal Syndrome

January 26, 2012

Every day, physicians prescribe Lexapro to pregnant women. Most doctors and virtually all patients are unaware of the serious and potential catastrohphic risks that Lexapro (escitalopram) imposes on unborn children. As a result, thousands of in utero children are exposed to escitalopram – and the potential for developing neonatal withdrawal syndrome.


Neonatal withdrawal syndrome occurs when recently birthed children suffer from the absence of a chemical – in the case of Lexapro, escitalopram – to which they have become dependent. The effects aren’t pretty and often include convulsions, irritability, abnormal crying, and tremors. Has your child suffered one of these symptoms? The cause may be more easily identifiable than you might think.
