Pregnancy Worries

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Within my circle of friends, there are those who just gave birth, giving birth soon, in the early stages of pregnancy and finally those who are and are planning to get pregnant soon. Just imagine how a lot of pregnancy worries afloat around us almost always and I guess we have a very strong support system, enough to ease those worries. The recent topic we had was about a Topamax birth defect lawsuit (filed for a client by the attorneys from O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949). Being vigilant about these things, we researched what it is about. Apparently the drug named Topamax was found to have caused birth defects, particularly cleft and lip palate, on newborns when their moms took it while pregnant. This pill is an anticonvulsant and is said to treat epileptic seizures, and even to prevent migraine attacks. At least now we all know the risks involved in this drug and we’d rather take the pain than worry about the unborn child’s health.
