What Might You Have in Common with 80,000 Pregnant Women?

February 22, 2012

If you’ve taken Celexa (citalopram) during pregnancy, you’re one of at least 80,000 pregnant women who according to the Journal of the American Medical Association take a prescription antidepressant, known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), every year.

 

Why is this number so high? While it’s true that some women decide to assume the fetal risks associated with Celexa (citalopram) for the sake of their mental health, a significant number continue their SSRI prescription during pregnancy because either they don’t know they are pregnant or they don’t fully comprehend the risks associated with this dangerous drug. The medical reality is that SSRIs like Celexa have been linked to a series of serious heart, lung, brain, and behavioral birth defects.

 

For a tragically high number of these women, the birth of their child is bittersweet as a result of Celexa. Although happy to see their little one, many new mothers also face a long, hard road as they watch their child deal with the effects of in utero SSRI exposure.
