Are Your Child’s Cardiac Birth Defects Related to Celexa?

June 27, 2012

Tragically, the answer to this question may be, “Yes.” You may not realize it, but this year marks the sixth anniversary since the earliest indications in medical journals that an expecting mother’s prescription to Celexa (citalopram) might cause unintended harm to her fetal child.

 

The initial concern revolved around a serious lung condition known as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN). Later reports expanded the scope of concern as some findings suggested that Celexa might also increase the likelihood of a host of cardiac conditions, including coarction of the aorta, pulmonary stenosis, and transposition of the great arteries, among others.

 

Was your child born with a cardiac birth defect? Were taking Celexa or another prescription antidepressant during your pregnancy? The two may be more closely related than you ever imagined.
