The Hidden Risks of Lexapro

May 17, 2012

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), commonly prescribed as antidepressants, can cause serious harm when ingested by expecting mothers, according to several recent medical studies. Medical researchers and some medical professionals believe that one such SSRI, Lexapro (escitalopram), is responsible for a variety of infant birth defects, developmental delays, and physical abnormalities. Tragically, some of these defects are very difficult to cure and, as a result, many neonates die after only a few weeks of life.
