Use of Antidepressants During Pregnancy Linked to Autism

 

A study by the Autism Research Program found that women who use antidepressants, specifically selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) while being pregnant are twice as likely to give birth to children with autism spectrum disorder.

The study, which compared the records of more than 1800 children, shows that the risk even triples for women who take SSRIs during the first trimester of pregnancy.

The FDA says SSRIs include, among others, Citalopram (Celexa), Escitalopram (Lexapro), Fluoxetine (Prozac, Prozac Weekly, Sarafem) and Paroxetine (Paxil, Paxil CR, Pexeva).

  Scripts are EVIL  
 
this too will be called a LIE buy the Pill makers.

We know full well these pills are a danger to those who take them let alone the children they are carrying .

go ahead and look up side effects for you scripts. Take a pill for depression can give suicidal thoughts/ actions.

The pill makers are experimenting on the public at large.

The link between some antidepressants and suicide is limited to where they are taken by people under 18 and for a short period of time.

They don´t give people suicidal thoughts like you say, the sh*t in their life does that, what happens is an antidepressant may make a person who has no motivation, the up-and-go they need to finally do the deed, where given a bit longer that up-and-go will be more about changing their life.

This, I believe, is limited to anti-depressants other than SSIRs, the tri-cyclic ones which work in a different way, and is why antidepressants should be prescribed in conjunction with talk therapy.

As for autism, this is very interesting as SSRIs are usually quite safe antidepressants.

is a much better source, says a bit about the experimental design:

I was wondering whether it was controlled for the underlying depression in mothers but I don´t think it was. It could be linked to the depression, not just the SSRI treatment. Interesting because Seratonin imbalances are linked to depression as well as autism.
