How Varied Are Lexapro Birth Defects?

March 1, 2012

Lexapro (escitalopram) is a dangerous drug for pregnant women and, in particular, their children. Tragically, although many Lexapro patients and their families realize that certain major neonatal injuries are linked to Lexapro – such as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) – they have no idea of the full diversity of birth defects.


Medical research has associated Lexapro with an increased probability of fetal craniosynostosis, cleft palate, club foot, pulmonary stenosis, and very serious heart defects. These injuries are serious and require expert medical attention.


They also require expert legal counsel, too. The complexity of these dangerous drug cases is so high that victims need dedicated, experienced legal professionals. Fortunately for you, our attorneys can provide the counsel you need. Find out your legal options today by speaking with the attorneys at Fears Nachawati.
