Study of Celexa in Pregnant Rats Suggests Dangers in Human Pregnancies

A recent study of the side effects of Celexa (citalopram), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) commonly prescribed to treat depression, has revealed that Celexa causes miscarriages and birth defects in rats.


Long used as a human analog, animal testing involving rats has traditionally produced some of the most accurate empirical findings with respect to how drugs may impact the human body. In fact, rats are so effective at replicating a human response that more than 90 percent of all animal testing for scientific research uses rats and mice.


Recent reports from pregnant women suggest that the Celexa study involving rats and mice is illustrative. Several medical researchers have found that when pregnant mothers take Celexa and other SSRIs, this risk of birth defects such PPHN and a variety of other ailments to their unborn child increases significantly.
