Lexapro Threatens the Health of Newborns

November 10, 2011

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Lexapro may be effective at treating depression, but medical evidence increasingly reveals that the adverse effects are a price too high for many mothers and their families.

 

Some studies suggest that prenatal children can be exposed to serious injury when their mothers’ take SSRIs during the first trimester. Other studies find that children in the womb can be hurt if Lexapro and antidepressants like it are consumed after the 20th week. Still other investigations suggest that the hazardous properties contained in SSRIs like Lexapro can be transferred through breast milk. Regardless of the time or manner of transmission, the reality is that a pregnant or new mother’s Lexapro prescription threatens the health of her newborn. In too many cases, these mothers are blind to this risk because the manufacturer of this dangerous drug has provided insufficient warning.

 

Lexapro (escitalopram) may have injured your child. If you’ve recently given birth to a child who suffers from persistent pulmonary hypertension and took or continue to take an antidepressant such as Lexapro or another SSRI, this dangerous drug may have harmed your child and your family.
