Birth Defects after Taking Lexapro
Amidst the concern regarding the connection between anti-depressants and birth defects, there has been significant alarm surrounding the use and adverse effects of the popular SSRI anti-depressant, Lexapro. With studies suggesting that women taking Lexapro during pregnancy significantly elevate their risk of giving birth to a child with serious complications or birth defects, it is essential that women who find themselves in this position learn about their legal rights and how our firm’s California defective drug attorneys can be of assistance.
Lexapro is used in the treatment of depression, as well as for anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and other similar conditions. With use of anti-depressants on the rise in the U.S., the Center for Disease Control and The New England Journal of Medicine funded a National Birth Defects Prevention Study, during which they investigated the use of Lexapro by pregnant women. The results showed a significant increase in the risk for children developing a number of cardiac birth defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) and numerous other complications and defects.
