Escitalopram (ESC) is considered one of the most effective selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) for the treatment of major depression disorder. However, little is known on its potential risk of inducing major malformations (MM) and/or perinatal complications (PC). Aim of the present study is to provide a review of the available literature on the safety profile of ESC during pregnancy and breastfeeding and to compare data with the maternal and neonatal outcomes of 8 cases of the DEGRA Center.

Abstract

Escitalopram (ESC) is considered one of the most effective selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) for the treatment of major depression disorder. However, little is known on its potential risk of inducing major malformations (MM) and/or perinatal complications (PC). Aim of the present study is to provide a review of the available literature on the safety profile of ESC during pregnancy and breastfeeding and to compare data with the maternal and neonatal outcomes of 8 cases of the DEGRA Center.
