Hi, thanks for asking in Healthcare Magic.
(Escitalopram) is a selective serotonin re uptake inhibitor (SSRI). It is an antidepressant and also reduces anxiety (anxiolytic). SSRI are used in the treatment of depression
, panic states, generalized anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder
and social anxiety
Escitalopram is a safe drug but can result in side effects too. Nausea, insomnia (difficulty in getting sleep), irritability are some of the common side effects of Escitalopram.
It results in sexual side effects like erectile dysfunction
(improper erection), delay in ejaculation and can interfere with orgasm. But it does not alter the morphology (structure) and function of sperm.
So your baby is safe and there is no need to worry.
Hope I have answered your query.
