Is Cleft Palate a Lexapro Birth Defect?

September 6, 2012

Lexapro (escitalopram) is famous for helping millions of patients handle their depression. However, this powerful pharmaceudical product is also infamous for causing thousands of birth defects. 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.
