Celexa, which is generically known as Citropram, is a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI). While it is generally good at treating some of the symptoms of depression, it has some serious side effects, which are shared by many other SSRIs, such as Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil. Unlike other antidepressants, SSRIs usually take several weeks to affect users, because they do not affect dopamine and noradrenaline as much.

Celexa is particlularly controversial because the makers of this drug, Forest Laboratories, have been fined $313 million dollars for providing doctors with kickbacks in order to push it for off-label uses, namely, the marketing of Celexa to children. Furthermore, Celexa lawsuits have secured settlements from Forest Laboratories because there were not enough warnings about the propensity to cause suicidal ideation and violent behavior.

Like all other SSRIs, one of the one most serious Celexa side effects in the fact that pregnant mothers might give birth to babies with birth defects if they were taking Celexa while pregnant. There are a number of different birth defects that might be caused by pregnant women taking Celexa. These include, amongst others, the following:

  • Persistent Pulmonary Hyertension

  • Gastroschisis

  • Enlarged Heart

  • Septal Heart Defects

  • Left Outflor Tract Heart Defects

  • Macroephaly

  • Cleft Lip

  • Cleft Palate

  • Delayed Development

  • Clubbed Foot

  • Miscarriage

  • Premature Birth

  • Infant Withdrawal Symptoms

  • Neural Tube Defects

  • Craniosynostosis

  • Spina Bifida

All of the aforementioned birth defects have been, at one point or another, found to be associated with SSRI ingestion by pregnant women. No mother, or father for that matter, deserves or wants to have a child born with debilitating birth defects. Some birth defects require massive expenditure on medical bills, and others require equally large expenditure on other accommodations. We believe that both the makers of these dangerous products and the doctors who prescribed them ought to be held accountable for the injuries caused.

Furthermore, patients who have coronary heart disease have a signgificantly higher chance or dying as a result of heart disease because Celexa prolong the QT interval of the heartbeat; Celexa causes Torsades de Pointes, a potentially fatal heart condition.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of taking the dangerous drug Celexa, you might be entitled to compensation. Contact one of our competent and compassionate lawyer s today to schedule a free and confidential case consultation.
