Did Your Lexapro Prescription Cause Your Child’s Spina Bifida?

March 22, 2012

You may not realize it, but your Lexapro (escitalopram) prescription may be connected to your child’s spina bifida. Spina bifida, a serious birth defect in which the backbone and spinal canal do not close before birth, occurs in a surprisingly large number of infants. Some estimates suggest that spina bifida is present in 1 out of 800 births.
