"General Pregnancy Information
Escitalopram 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.

Again, remeber, all persons are different and so are the vegetative nature of their psychiatric symptoms. If you are going to take Lexapro during your pregnancy, you need to discuss this, in very, specific terms, discussing if it would be beneficial for you to take this or not, including the FDA category C, possilbe impact on the fetus, side-effects/adverse events, and other related to a lexapro regimen if you are expecting. Hope this helps, clm
