Lexapro and Birth Defects

Lexapro belongs to the class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and is prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, and occasionally as a smoking cessation aid.  When taken by pregnant women, Lexapro heightens the chances that the women will give birth to a child with a severe and potentially fatal birth defect.  Potential Lexapro birth defects include:

  • Heart valve Problems
  • Truncus Arteriosus
  • Tricuspid Valve Stenosis
  • Tricuspid Valve (Ebstein’s Anomaly)
  • Tricuspid Atresia
  • Transposition of the Great Arteries / Vessels
  • Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF)
  • Spina Bifida
  • Septal heart defects
  • Pulmonary Stenosis
  • Pulmonary Atresia
  • PPHN (persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborns)
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA)
  • Omphalocele
  • Mitral Valve
  • Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome (HRHS)
  • Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS)
  • Heart Murmur
  • Gastroschisis – abdominal wall defect
  • Esophageal Stenosis
  • Craniosynostosis – cranial skull defect
  • Coarctation of the Aorta
  • Club Foot
  • Aortic Stenosis
  • Anal Atresia

Many women are not aware that they are pregnant during their first trimester, and this is the time when the majority of Lexapro birth defects are formed.  As a result, it is crucial that doctors prescribing Lexapro exercise extreme caution when prescribing Lexapro and other SSRIs to women of childbearing age.
