Pregnant and Depressed? Time to Talk to Your Physician

October 27, 2011

Lexapro (escitalopram) has received increasing amounts of attention from the medical and legal community in recent months. Several studies from leading health institutions and public advisories from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) point to a significant relationship between a pregnant woman’s consumption of Lexapro and other SSRI antidepressants and fetal development of persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) and other serious birth defects.


Some doctors argue that the risks associated with a sudden cessation of antidepressant medication warrant the risk of birth defects. Numerous victims and their children, however, have a different story to tell. SSRI babies suffer not only from PPHN, a potentially fatal birth defect, but also irritability, difficulty feeding, and difficulty breathing in some cases.


Has your doctor prescribed Lexapro or another SSRI? Have you become pregnant while taking Lexapro? The risks to your child could be severe. It may be time to talk to your physician. And if your child has suffered as a result of your SSRI prescription, it may be time to talk to the dangerous drug experts at Fears Nachawati, too.
