America’s expecting mothers are gradually becoming aware of the threats that antidepressant drugs, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), impose on the children growing inside them. Infamously, multiple medical studies have shown that SSRIs like Lexapro (escitalopram) significantly increase cardiac, pulmonary, and neural birth defects among exposed children.
Persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) is one of the most insidious of the cardiac birth defects that threaten the lives of injured newborns. However, contrary to the assumptions of some mothers, PPHN isn’t the only cardiac birth defect Lexapro produces. Additional Lexapro-caused cardiac conditions include pulmonary stenosis, right ventricular hypertrophy, large ventricular septal defect, and overriding aorta.
Does your newborn suffer one of these life-altering – and potentially life-threatening – cardiac birth defects? Your Lexapro may have been a contributing cause, a violation of the rights of you, your child, and your family.
