Migraine and Pregnancy

Friday, June 10, 2011

During pregnancy, mothers stay away from over-the-counter drugs by instinct. Or if they cannot help it, they only take medicines prescribed by their doctor. Of course this is because they want to avoid side effects some medicines may have on the unborn child. It is therefore heartbreaking to find out that at least one drug company promoted a migraine drug for unapproved purposes. Later, some babies whose mothers took the anti-convulsant drug Topamax while pregnant were born with lip/cleft palate. I understand if those mothers are compelled to file a class Topamax lawsuit (through O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949). If you are one of those affected, maybe it is time for you to made a stand, too.
