Topamax Birth Defects
Serving Alabama, Mississippi & Florida including Mobile, Pascagoula, Gulfport, Biloxi & Pensacola
Recently the FDA notified the medical community and public citizens that the drug Topamax carries an increased risk of causing cleft lip and/or cleft palate in babies whose mother's took it during the first trimester of pregnancy. Data collected from a registry of pregnant women revealed the risk and showed that such women were found to be 21 times more likely to have their child born with the defects. According to the FDA data, more than 32 million Topamax prescriptions have been filled since 2007, and millions more took it during the time it has been on the market. If you took this drug during pregnancy and delivered a child with a Topamax birth defect you may be entitled to recover from the manufacturer. Contact us to find out if you can participate in a Topamax lawsuit to recover monetary damages resulting from your child's birth defect.
The FDA now recommends that women of childbearing age find different treatment options for seizures and migraines. Otherwise, the FDA says women using Topamax should also use effective birth control.
