AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Are teenagers who were exposed to SSRIs in utero more likely to experience psychiatric illnesses than those who were not exposed

Up to 8% of pregnant women take an antidepressant, but we do not understand the long-term effects on brain development and childhood mental illness. A cohort of young adults (16-21) would be assessed for psychiatric illness, in utero medication exposure would be recorded (with emphasis on antidepressants) and potential confounders such as intellectual/physical disability, adverse childhood experiences, family hx, etc would be recorded. Associations would be tested and future studies designed.
