Women who take anti-depressants in early pregnancy are not more likely to have children with autism or ADHD.
Researchers studied over one million infants born in Sweden over 16 years. They found no increased risk of autism or attention problems in children whose mothers took antidepressants during their first trimester.
However, antidepressant use was linked to a slight increase in the risk of premature birth.
