Studies show link from antidepressants and autism

Multiple studies and an FDA warning have shown a link between the use of antidepressants and anti-seizure medication while pregnant and autism. Although the studies have been published, the research is still in a very early phase.

The FDA warned that valporate drugs such as Depakote may be linked to children scoring lower on cognitive tests for mothers who took the bipolar/epilepsy medication while pregnant.

Another study found that children had lower IQ tests if they were exposed to anti-seizure medication in the womb. Now a new study shows that the risk of a child developing autism doubles when a mother was prescribed an antidepressant. Further research on the topic will be conducted.
