Celexa (citalopram) is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant drug. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat major depression, and is often prescribed off-label to treat anxiety disorders, ADHD, OCD and panic disorders.
Researchers have concluded that women taking Celexa while they are pregnant are at a greater risk of having newborn babies with congenital birth defects. The strong link between Celexa side effects and congenital heart defects has prompted many doctors to warn pregnant women to stop using Celexa during pregnancy.

The New England Journal of Medicine published a study indicating that children whose mothers took SSRI antidepressants like Celexa during pregnancy were six (6) times more likely to be born with the cardio-pulmonary birth defect Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN) than those whose mothers did not use antidepressants during pregnancy.
