What are the side-effects of Celexa?

A 2006 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, discovered that women taking SSRI’s during pregnancy place themselves at an increased risk of childbirth complications. The study focused on persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) in newborn babies. The study found that when compared with mothers who did not take SSRI antidepressants while pregnant, those mothers taking the SSRI’s after their 20th week of pregnancy were 6 times more likely to have a baby with persistent pulmonary hypertension.

The Mayo Clinic has stated that Celexa may be the cause of several specific birth defects in children whose mother took the drug while pregnant. If your child has suffered from any of the following Celexa birth defects, you may be entitled to compensation:

  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension (PPHN) – This is one of the most noted Celexa birth defects. Women taking Celexa while pregnant may increase the risk of PPHN in newborns by 6 times according to the New England Journal of Medicine. Babies born with PPHN have an improper blood flow throughout their heart and lungs, which deprives them of oxygen. It is estimated that approximately 20% of babies born with persistent pulmonary hypertension do not survive.
  • Skull and Brain Defects – Women using Celexa during the first trimester increase the likelihood of their child being born with craniosynostosis. This occurs when an infant’s skull joints close too soon, preventing the brain from proper development. If this occurs, the child may suffer impaired vision, impaired cognitive development, or a misshapen head.
  • Heart Defects – These may include Arterial Septal Defect, Double Outlet of the Right Ventricle, Transportation of the Great Arteries, Coarctation of the Aorta, Left Heart Syndrome, Tetralogy of Fallot, Ventricular Septal Defect, Truncus Arteriosus, or Pulmonary Artesia.
  • Abdominal Wall Defects – These may include omphalocele, gastroschisis, or diaphragmatic hernia.
  • Lung Defects – These may include esophageal atresia, asthma, and other breathing issues.
  • Autism – SSRI’s may cause autism spectrum disorder.
  • Fatal Neural Tube Defect – These may include anencephaly or spina bifida.
  • Cleft Palate – When the skull fails to properly form in the roof of the mouth.
  • Cleft Lip – Defect in the upper lip of an infant.
  • Club Foot – Occurs when an infant’s foot muscles, joints and bone develop.

This is not intended to be a complete list of side effects, and you should immediately contact your doctor if you are having any other problems.

What should I do if I’ve developed Negative Side effects after taking Celexa?

For too long large pharmaceutical companies have placed profits ahead of proper drug testing and labeling. The constant FDA Celexa warnings and revisions serve to warn the public of the dangers associated with antidepressants such as Celexa. Large pharmaceutical companies are responsible for the harm they negligently cause their consumers.

How can a Lawyer help my Celexa Lawsuit Case?

Drug Companies are massive and powerful corporations that can lobby members of Congress on their behalf to get medicines like Celexa approved by the FDA. Taking on these companies by yourself can be a daunting endeavor, but when you have a Celexa lawsuit attorney on your team, the fight is winnable. The Laws surrounding how drugs are made, the clinical trials that must be used to prove they are effective and safe, and how the drugs are marketed can be confusing because they are often purposely made so. When pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies write the laws that are supposed to govern drugs like Celexa, they write the laws so that they are protected from most types of lawsuits, and so that they can reap as much profit as possible. The average St. Louis and Missouri citizens will not know these laws and won’t be able to effectively use them to fight a Celexa lawsuit case of this level. This is why hiring a lawyer with experience in trying Celexa cases is so important.

The Celexa Lawsuit Attorneys of Dixon Law are prepared to take on the massive drug corporations and ensure that you get the justice you deserve. Our Celexa Lawsuit Attorneys can help you win your case because we know the St. Louis and Missouri Laws and Statutes surrounding drug use, federal approval needed for drugs, and the Tort laws regarding defective and dangerous medicine. With these weapons, we can bring the makers of Celexa to heel and hold them responsible for the side effects and other medical issues you now suffer from after taking Celexa.
