cipralex contain Escitalopram
it has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA.
Escitalopram is the S-enantiomer of racemic citalopram.
Human spontaneous abortion has been reported by the manufacturer of citalopram. Animal studies have revealed evidence of adverse effects on embryo/fetal and postnatal development, including teratogenic effects, when administered at doses greater than human therapeutic doses.
There are no controlled data in human pregnancy.
Escitalopram should be given during pregnancy only if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk to the fetus.
better to take advise of ur gynecologist before planning pregnancy
