Lexapro & the Third Trimester

April 19, 2012

Not all risks are created equal. For instance, the risks associated with driving are greater when you drive at night than during the day. Or the risks of strenuous exercise are greater if you’re overweight than if you’re in good physical condition.


The same is true for certain drugs, including a commonly prescribed antidepressant, Lexapro (escitalopram). While researchers have identified a general correlation between a pregnant woman taking Lexapro and the presence of birth defects in her child, the risk level isn’t constant. Rather, the risk increases meaningfully during the third trimester.


What are the concerns associated with prenatal Lexapro exposure during the third trimester? They are more extensive than you might realize and include serious respiratory conditions, seizures, tremors, and feeding difficulties.


Are you a current or former Lexapro patient whose child exhibited abnormal behaviors, conditions, or physical deformities at birth? You may have a valid legal claim against the manufacturer of this dangerous drug. Talk to the skilled attorneys at Fears Nachawati today to find out the answer to your questions.
