What are the side-effects of Lexapro

The side effects associated with Lexapro are similar to other anti-depressants. As with any medication, if you are experiencing any of the following side effects, contact your doctor immediately. Do not stop taking your medication before speaking with your doctor.

Lexapro’s FDA-approved medicine guide lists the following side effects:

  • Suicidal thoughts or actions
  • Serotonin Syndrome – agitation, hallucinations, coordination problems, muscle twitching, racing heartbeat, high or low blood pressure, sweating, fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Severe allergic reactions – trouble breathing, swelling of the face, tongue, eyes or mouth, rash, itchy welts, blisters
  • Abnormal bleeding – increased risk of bleeding or bruising, especially with use of blood thinners or NSAID’s
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Manic episodes – greatly increased energy, severe trouble sleeping, racing thoughts, reckless behavior, excessive happiness or irritability
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Low salt levels in the blood

Birth defects associated with Lexapro include but are not limited to:

  • Spontaneous abortions
  • Low birth weight
  • Premature birth
  • Neonatal serotonin syndrome
  • Abnormal neural behavior
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPH)
  • Heart defects
  • Cleft lip or palate

The FDA has not listed birth defects on the Lexapro medicine guide although they issued a “health advisory” in 2006 alerting women to the risks associated with taking SSRI’s while pregnant. More specifically, studies indicated that women who took or are taking SSRI’s in the second half of their pregnancy are twice as likely to give birth to newborns with birth defects.

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

You have a right to file a lawsuit against Forest Laboratories if taking Lexapro has harmed you or a loved one. The evidence has shown that drug manufacturers like Forest are primarily concerned with lining their pockets. The United States Senate, as well as the U.S. Department of Justice, has noticed their blatant disregard and willful intent to put money above the safety of the general public. Forest has settled several lawsuits for hundreds of millions of dollars. More lawsuits are being filed every day.

If you believe you have a claim against Forest Laboratories, quick action is essential as the statute of limitations to file a lawsuit could be running out. St. Louis Lexapro lawyer Christopher Dixon is ready to review your case today.

How can a Lawyer help my Lexapro Lawsuit Case?

Drug Companies are massive and powerful corporations that can lobby members of Congress on their behalf to get medicines like Lexapro approved by the FDA. Taking on these companies by yourself can be a daunting endeavor, but when you have a Lexapro 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 Lexapro, 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 Lexapro lawsuit case of this level. This is why hiring a lawyer with experience in trying Lexapro cases is so important.

The Lexapro Lawsuit Attorneys of Dixon Law are prepared to take on the massive drug corporations and ensure that you get the justice you deserve. Our Lexapro 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.
