And while some Lexapro birth defects are well known – such as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) – others are largely overlooked. In particular, many patients and Lexapro victims don’t realize the many developmental birth defects associated with Lexapro, including misshapen skulls, cleft lip, club foot, and cleft palate.
