SSRIs and Autism: A Connection You Shouldn’t Ignore

October 17, 2012

Recent medical studies have determined that pregnant women should not only be concerned about the relatively well-established links between antidepressants and infant heart conditions like persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), but also about the potential relationship between SSRIs and autism.


While absolute risks are limited, mothers who took an antidepressant during pregnancy and who gave birth to a child affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may want to fully investigate the potential causes of the child’s ASD. In the event that the SSRI manufacturer failed sufficiently test the drug or warn the patient, injured families may have a viable claim.
