The Troubling Truth about Lexapro

September 13, 2012

Recent medical studies have reached unsettling conclusions about Lexapro (escitalopram), a widely prescribed antidepressant. When taken by pregnant patients, Lexapro elevates the risk that the developing child will experience a variety of birth defects which include aorta coarctation, hypoplastic left heart syndrome, club foot, and spina bifida, among many other complications. These birth defects are painful, often require surgery, and can even be fatal.


Of course, the costs associated with these birth defects aren’t simply financial or medical. They are also emotional and psychological, taking a toll on parents as much as the infant. Fortunately, some families – parents and children alike – have found justice through the legal system. Your family’s suffering may entitle you to an award, too.
