The Connection between Lexapro and Autism

February 9, 2012

Lexapro (escitalopram) is a dangerous drug responsible for increasing the probability that a child is born with autism, according to recently published medical data. According to one finding, women who took a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) such as Lexapro inadvertently increased the probability that their child would be born with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by 300 percent.


Are you concerned that your SSRI or Lexapro (escitalopram) prescription might have contributed to your child’s developmental disorder or birth defect? You need sound medical advice and experienced legal counsel to determine how you should move forward.
