Lexapro Side Effects

Several studies have found the use of antidepressants by pregnant women to negatively affect a child's ability to form properly in their mother's womb. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the use of antidepressants in a mothers final trimester made it six times more likely for babies to be born with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN). The following is a list of side effects associated with the use of Lexapro.

  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN)
    • A tragic condition in which babies are unable to get oxygen through their bloodstream directly after birth. Since oxygen is then unable to travel to the baby's vital organs, they quickly become stressed.
  • Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS)
    • A condition in which the left side of the baby's heart is underdeveloped.
  • Cleft lip
  • Cleft palate
  • Clubfoot
  • Autism

According to a study conducted by Kaiser Permanente, the use of SSRIs like Lexapro increased the risk of giving birth to a child with autism. Although Lexapro has yet to be recalled, the FDA has issued several warnings trying to decrease the use of Lexapro by pregnant women as well as the number of children affected.

Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Tragic Lexapro Pregnancies

The FDA has warned the public of Lexapro side effects, but many mothers are still giving birth to children who suffer serious injuries. Manufacturers have an obligation to provide products that are reasonably safe for the people who use them. Many of the mothers who took Lexapro were unaware of the dangers it presented, and were unable to make the responsible decision as a result of this lack of information. Some Lexapro victims are spending a fortune on medical bills just to keep their children alive. If you or your newborn have suffered injuries due to a manufacturers failure to provide a reasonable level of safety than you may have a claim for compensation, and we can help.
