The Many Complications with Celexa

Celexa (citalopram) remains a widely prescribed antidepressant, despite a large and disconcerting list of complications. Although Celexa may successive stem the tide of depression for some consumers, for pregnant patients citalopram treatments come with some distressing side effects: according to the New England Journal of Medicine, infants exposed to Celexa after the 20th week of pregnancy were six times more likely to be born with persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN).


Moreover, a Pediatrics study identified Celexa risks for newborns as including abnormal heart rhythms, and others medical outlets have identified Celexa exposure as increasing the probability of respiratory complications by 100 percent. This data is distressing for many families, particularly those whose child has suffered as a result of Celexa.
