Birth Defect caused by a Drug

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I am not sure if you already heard it but a huge amount of money have been put at stake after a drug manufacturer plead guilty for false advertising in 2009. After studies, it was revealed that a Topamax birth defect may occur when pregnant mothers ingest the drug with generic name Topiragen. This is said to ease the pain of migraine but may cause cleft/lip palate on unborn children. If you are a parent or know anyone who is possible a victim of this drug, you have a fair chance to be claim for damages. Maybe you should discuss this with your lawyers.

This is a great post about the risks of Topamax. If a pregnant woman, or woman who may become pregnant takes this medication, it greatly increases the chance that the baby will suffer from the birth defects cleft lip and cleft palate. The FDA has advised that women who are or may become pregnant not take Topamax for the safety of their child. Just something to be aware of – this can lead to tragic health risks if an unexpected pregnancy occurs. Regards, TL
