Did Your Lexapro Prescription Cause Your Child’s Birth Defects?

November 3, 2011

It’s a question more and more Lexapro (escitalopram) patients are asking their physicians. Tragically, every year hundreds of children are born with birth defects like persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) as a result of their mother’s prescription to a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), such as Lexapro. SSRIs are excellent at fighting depression, but recent studies and injured children reveal that SSRIs like Lexapro can cause a variety of dangerous, potentially lethal side effects. To add injustice to injury, the children who are injured have absolutely no choice as it relates to whether their mother should ingest Lexapro or other dangerous drugs.


Fortunately, Lexapro victims aren’t entirely without a means of fighting back. The expert attorneys at Fears Nachawati are preparing to file a class action on behalf of SSRI victims and their families. Drugs like Lexapro are dangerous. Patients deserve to fully understand the potential effects of these hazardous antidepressants. The tragic reality is that for many years drug manufacturers kept the full truth from doctors and patients.
