Beyond the 20th Week Marks Celexa Danger Zone

October 26, 2011

You probably know that dangerous drugs permeate the pharmaceutical marketplace. What you may not realize is that the risk of side effects with some drugs, including the SSRI antidepressant medication Celexa, changes over time. As medical studies have shown and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cautioned, infants born to mothers taking Celexa after the 20th week of pregnancy are six times more likely to have persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) than mothers who do not take SSRI antidepressants during pregnancy.

 

The fact that risk levels vary over the life of your pregnancy is news to many patients – and many doctors. In fact, it’s a medical reality that some experts believe the pharmaceutical industry and Celexa manufacturers have done a poor job communicating to patients and the public.
