Is Celexa Dangerous for Pregnant Women?

January 11, 2012

Celexa (citalopram), one of the most recent antidepressants to roll off the drug manufacturers’ production line, isn’t as well known as Zoloft (sertraline) or as widely prescribed as Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine). Tragically, this left some pregnant Celexa patients to think that either Celexa isn’t a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) or that it somehow isn’t as dangerous as other SSRIs. Unfortunately, the medical reality simply doesn’t support these conclusions.


Celexa (citalopram) is an SSRI that, if taken during pregnancy, can cause serious birth defects in the developing fetus, including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and other brain, lung, and heart conditions. While some of these conditions are relatively mild and may be resolved relatively easily, PPHN and a number of other ailments are very serious and may be life-threatening.
