Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1998, Celexa (citalopram) is
used by millions of Americans to treat major depression, panic disorders, obsessive-compulsive
disorders, and social anxiety disorders. More specifically, Celexa has been prescribed to
pregnant women to help them with anxiety related to their pregnancy. Unfortunately,
studies seem to indicate that the fetuses of these women are at a greater risk for
developing a birth defect. The side effects associated with Celexa include:
Congenital Heart Defects;
Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN);
Omphalocele (abdominal wall birth defect);
Craniosynostosis (cranial birth defect);
Manufactured by Forest Laboratories, Inc., Celexa is a member of a class of drugs which
are widely referred to as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). It works by
restoring the balance of serotonin, a naturally occurring substance found in the brain,
which helps to improve certain mood problems. The FDA has issued a warning that taking
Celexa during pregnancy has been directly linked to congenital heart defects, mostly
atrial and ventricular septal defects, which are characterized by holes in the walls of
the chambers of the heart.
Studies have shown a significant increase in occurrence of serious birth defects as a
result of using Celexa during the first trimester.
Forest Laboratories, Inc., had a responsibility to warn the public and the medical
community about the special risks of developing birth defects in newborns, cardiovascular
defects, heart-related birth defects, and other serious problems associated with the use
of Celexa. If you or a loved one has taken Celexa and given birth to a child with a
congenital birth defect, you may need to file a Celexa lawsuit.
