Failure to Warn at Heart of Lexapro Claims

April 26, 2012

The drug maker responsible for Lexapro (escitalopram), Forest Laboratories, failed to include on the label of Lexapro boxes a warning stating that Lexapro had been linked to an increased risk of birth defects when taken during pregnancy. The absence of this warning – a medical concern first reported in 2005 – is an essential part of the claim that many victims and their families are making: that Forest Laboratories’s failure to warn led directly to the physical pain and emotional trauma that their child ultimately experienced.
