“Congenital malformations with psychopharmacologic agents”. 
Comprehensive Psychiatry.. 1975;16(5):437-445.
Studies reporting fetal effects, particularly teratogenesis, of psychopharmacological agents are examined in a literature review. Antidepressants, lithium, hypnotics, anxiolytics, al-cohol and lysergic acid diethylamide are among the drugs examined. An extensive review of congenital malformaions in the infants of women who received psychopharmacologic agents during pregnancy reveals the occurrence of very few cases of congenital defects. Present evidence does not preclude prescription of psychopharmacologic agents to pregnant women with mental illness or epilepsy. Reduction of drug induced malformations is discussed in terms of careful prescribing and monitoring of drug effects as well as central recording by a registry. 62 references.
