Facial Dysmorphism and Depakote Use

When using Depakote while pregnant, mothers put their unborn children at increased risk for serious birth defects. This drug has been linked to a variety of defects affecting the development of the fetus, creating serious health concerns at birth. When this drug alters the development of a person’s face, the result can be a defect known as facial dysmorphism.

For additional information regarding your rights and options if your family has been affected by Depakote, contact the Depakote lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.

What is Facial Dysmorphism?

Depakote contains a powerful active ingredient known as metoclopramide, which can have a devastating impact on a child’s developing body. If facial features are affected because of facial dysmorphism, a range of different problems may arise. These may include the following abnormalities:

  • Deformed ears
  • Uneven face
  • Different colors for both eyes
  • Eyes spaced unusually apart
  • Cleft lip or palate

Without a series of surgical treatments, these deformities can come to have a serious impact on a child’s self-esteem and self-image. Additionally, some of these defects, such as cleft lips and palates, can have an impact on the child’s speech and hearing development. The surgeries and therapy sessions required to treat these problems can become very expensive and time-consuming over the years, placing a massive burden on the family.
