Lexapro May Put Newborns’ Health at Risk

June 14, 2012

For several years, Lexapro (escitalopram), a widely prescribed antidepressant, has helped pregnant patients battle depression, but it’s also put their fetal children at risk of serious side effects, including heart, lung, and developmental conditions. Medical researchers like those from the New England Journal of Medicine have examined the risks that Lexapro may impose on fetal development and outlined why its important for expecting mothers to understand the possible connections between selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Lexapro and a host of fetal medical conditions.
