Lexapro Patients May Benefit from Skilled Representation

August 16, 2012

Lexapro (escitalopram) isn’t just a powerful drug. According to several medical studies, it may also be a dangerous one for the children of expecting mothers.


Recent medical research suggests that Lexapro, a commonly prescribed antidepressant that belongs to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), may elevate the risk of prenatal birth defects. According to one study, mothers who took Lexapro during pregnancy elevated the probability that their child was born with a birth defect such as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) by a factor of six.


Are you concerned that your Lexapro prescription might be related to your child’s birth defect? Numerous patients have filed a products liability lawsuit against the maker of the antidepressant that so powerfully impacted their lives. Is such a suit right for you and your family? The attorneys at the law firm of Fears Nachawati can give you the advice you need. To find out the answers to your important questions, contact our professionals today.
