Do You Know the Full Set of SSRI Conditions?

February 16, 2012

Lexapro (escitalopram) is a dangerous drug, particularly when prescribed to women who are pregnant or may become pregnant. The active ingredients in Lexapro can have a significant chemical impact on adult women. So, you can only imagine the relative power of this prescription drug when it is communicated to a developing fetus through the umbilical cord or to a newborn through a mother’s breast milk.


The effects of fetal exposure to Lexapro and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors can be considerable. Although persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) is perhaps the most common cited, Lexapro has also been linked to severe congenital heart defects like atrial and ventricular septal defects, Shone’s Complex, and other serious conditions. While some Lexapro-induced injuries can be as insignificant as a heart murmur, others can be so severe as to require multiple surgeries and even a heart transplant.
