Celexa & Birth Defect Lawsuits Celexa Lawyer
In recent studies, researchers have discovered that the use of Anti-depressants medications such as Celexa taken during pregnancy may potentially increase the risk of severe birth defects such as cardiac defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborns (PPHN) neural tube defects, craniosynostosis, anal atresia, cleft lip, cleft palate, and limb malformations.
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 Cleft Lip or other birth defect, a medication such as Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Topamax or Depakote may be to blame.
