Jim Adler | The Tough, Smart Lawyer

Has your child been harmed by a defective drug? If the child’s mother took anti-seizure drug Depakote within a year before giving birth, then it may have caused a Depakote birth defect. In such cases, families may file a Depakote lawsuit seeking financial recovery. Hiring a Depakote lawyer can help pay for medical bills caused by taking this drug.

Though Depakote can assist in reducing seizures from epilepsy or migraine headaches, when taken by a pregnant woman, it also may cause birth defects to her child. Similarly, an anti-seizure drug called Topamax may cause such injuries. If you or your loved one has been seriously injured, contact the Texas Hammer® to handle your Depakote lawsuit today. We take all Depakote lawsuits very seriously and keep victims in mind throughout the entire process.

Dangerous Depakote Side Effects

Among dangerous Depakote side effects are the following:

  • Cleft palate
  • Cleft lip
  • Hypospadias
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Missing limbs
  • Malformed limbs
  • Atrial septal defect

Incriminating Depakote Data

Many Depakote side effects have been revealed in Depakote studies, which have been noted by medical organizations.

For instance, the American Academy of Neurology asserts that pregnant women should not take Depakote, which also is known as valproic acid. In addition, a study in The Netherlands showed that Depakote increased by 12 times the danger of a child suffering from spina bifida if the child’s mother took Depakote while she was pregnant.

In addition, if the expectant mother takes Depakote, there’s a seven times greater chance of a child suffering craniosynostosis, a defect of the skull involving the bones of the skull closing up earlier than is customary.

In addition, a male child of a woman who took Depakote while pregnant has a five times higher chance of being afflicted with hypospadias, which means the urethra’s opening is under the penis and not on the end.
