Lexapro birth defects lawsuitA commonly used anti-depressant is at the center of a lawsuit in the death of a one-day old child.

Sonja Jamsek took a mild dose of Lexapro during her pregnancy. Her doctor warned that her infant might experience withdrawal after being born.

However, the doctor didn’t advise that her infant may develop Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN). At the time, her doctor was unaware of this particular Lexapro birth defect.

Sonja Jamsek alleges that Lexapro is to blame for pulmonary hypertension in her baby. She argues that PPHN limited her daughter’s oxygen supply and caused fatal internal bleeding.
