Categorized as Anti-depressants

In recent studies, researchers have discovered that the use of prescription drugs such as Antidepressants & Anti-Seizure medications taken during pregnancy may cause Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension and other birth defects. Fifty percent of the women taking the medications were not notified that the drugs they were taking put their baby at risk for birth defects.

If your child was born with a Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension or other birth defect, a medication such as Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Topamax or Depakote may be to blame.
