Examination of Antidepressant Use in Late Pregnancy and Newborn Respiratory Disorder

An analysis of approximately 3.8 million pregnancies finds that use of antidepressants late in pregnancy may be associated with an increased risk of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), according to a study in the June 2 issue of JAMA.
