Celexa and Neural Tube Defect Risk
Last year, a report in a respected medical journal concluded that Celexa (citalopram) may increase the risk that pregnant Celexa patients may inadvertently exposure their child to an elevated risk of neural tube birth defects. This elevated risk is particularly high during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Have you or a loved one given birth to a child who suffered a birth defect such as spina bifida, autism, or a heart condition like persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN)? If the infant’s mother took Celexa during pregnancy, this may not simply be a medical situation, but a legal issue as well. For many people suffering from the legacy of a child’s birth defect, it is important to learn as much as possible about what happened, why it happened, and how people in your position might respond.
