Craniosynostosis Caused by Zoloft, Prozac, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor or Sarafem
Has your baby been diagnosed with Craniosynostosis? Were you prescribed an antidepressant SSRI drug such as Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor or Sarafem?
If so, you should know that SSRIs have been linked with serious birth defects in infants when taken by their pregnant mothers. In fact, Eli Lilly, the manufacturer of the SSRI drug Prozac, has acknowledged the link between Prozac use by pregnant women and birth defects in their babies. Studies have also shown a dramatic increase in the onset of craniosynostosis in babies when these antidepressant drugs have been given to their pregnant mothers. Craniosynostosis is the premature closing of one or more of the joints between the sections of the baby's skull. Studies have shown a 2.5 time increase in infants exposed to SSRIs while in utero. The seriousness of the condition can vary and can affect the structure of the skull or lead to an underdeveloped brain. For years, the drug companies promised that these medications were safe for use by pregnant women. This is not the case.
