Lexapro Side Effects

Many Lexapro side effects are serious but they can be especially concerning for pregnant women and their unborn children. If you took Lexapro while pregnant, here are a few things you should know:

  • Lexapro received a grade of C from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for its safety level for expectant mothers, but the risks to the unborn child may not have been made clear to the people who received prescriptions of it.
  • Birth defects caused by Lexapro can range from Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of Newborns (PPHN) to cleft palette or cleft lip to heart defects to neural tube defects. These serious issues could result in a lifetime of pain, suffering and necessity for medical care – or worse, they could be fatal.
  • You deserve compensation to offset medical bills, potential lost wages and pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you decide whether or not you should join a class action lawsuit.
