Lexapro Birth Defects: Costly and Often Fatal

Lexapro (escitalopram) birth defects are tragic. Caused when a pregnant mother ingests Lexapro and other antidepressants known as Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), the birth defects that develop in her child include life-threatening heart, brain, and spinal conditions, among others. The medical reality is that the surgeries required to address these conditions are almost always numerous, expensive, and uncertain. The fatality rate among children born with Lexapro-induced abnormalities is shockingly high.

 Despite the damage caused by Lexapro (escitalopram) and similar SSRIs, drug manufacturers continue to push for their prescription in women and some doctors continue to write those prescriptions, even for women who may become pregnant.
