Dr. Tim Oberlander comments to CNN about a new study that examined the relationship between antidepressants and the risk of autism. In spite of this newly reported risk, experts emphasize that it's critical to treat maternal depression during pregnancy because untreated depression carries its own risks while treatment helps many mothers and their babies. As Dr. Oberlander emphasizes, it remains critical to undertake further studies that tell us why some children and not others are at risk following prenatal exposure to antidepressants.
