Lexapro

LexaproLexapro [escitalopram] is a drug that was released by the Forest Pharmaceuticals Corporation aimed at fighting depression. The FDA approved Lexapro in August of 2002.

Lexapro is a member of the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor family (SSRI’s), which increases serotonin levels in the synapse by blocking serotonin reuptake into brain cells.

The SSRI’s are antidepressants, similar to Prozac and include Lexapro, Celexa, Luvox, Paxil, and Zoloft. These are widely suspected of contributing to suicidal and/or violent behaviors, especially in children. This point of view has recently been adopted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Cellino & Barnes is currently evaluating Lexapro suicide cases for family members of individuals who have taken Lexapro and committed suicide or attempted to commit suicide while on the drug. Studies suggest that Lexapro and other SSRI’s bring on increased and overwhelming thoughts of suicide in some people.

If you or loved one have been injured as a result of taking the above drug, you may have a valid claim. Call Cellino & Barnes now at (800) 888-8888 or contact us.

Client Thanks

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
