You, Your Child, and Lexapro

June 21, 2012

You may think of Lexapro (escitalopram) as a just an antidepressant. However, this selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) is much more. According to medical studies as well as a health advisory from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Lexapro and other SSRIs have been linked to a number of birth defects. In fact, one study found that infants exposed to Lexapro during the second half of pregnancy were six times more likely to have persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) at birth.


Are you a Lexapro patient whose child suffers from a birth defect? Your child’s injury may be more closely related to Lexapro than you might have ever considered. Moreover, your child’s and your family’s legal rights may have been violated by your SSRI medication. As a result, you may be entitled to legal damages and compensation.
