Is Celexa the Only SSRI Linked to Birth Defects?

Celexa (citalopram) is a dangerous drug that medical researchers have linked to such neonatal birth deformities as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), septal and ventricular heart defects, and Shone’s Complex, among other abnormalities. Moreover, the severity of these conditions varies from as light as a mild heart murmurs to as serious as prolonged, intensive treatment and even death.


Unfortunately, many patients don’t realize that Celexa isn’t the only selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) connected to fetal birth conditions. Similar antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and Lexapro are also thought to cause birth defects in newborns.
