Does Celexa Cause Neural Tube Birth Defects?

May 2, 2012

Pregnant patients suffering from depression have a serious issue to take into consideration: the extent to which Celexa (citralopram) poses a threat to the health and well being of their child.

 

Recent medical reports such as the article published last year in Obstetrics & Gynecology have pointed to links between Celexa and birth defects such as neural tube developmental issues. Perhaps most troublesome is that the risk of harm is greatest during the first trimester – precisely the period when many women don’t even realize they’re pregnant.
