Harmful Birth Defects Linked to Depakote Use

Depakote is a prescription drug prescribed to thousands of Americans for the treatment of various conditions, such as epilepsy, migraine headaches, depression, and bipolar disorder. While this drug may be effective at treating these conditions, if women take Depakote while pregnant, they have an increased risk of giving birth to a child with harmful birth defects.

If you or someone you love has given birth to a child with birth defects after taking the drug Depakote while pregnant, please contact the experienced Depakote lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for more information regarding your legal rights and options.

Birth Defects Associated with Depakote

Birth defects are harmful conditions that are congenital (present at birth) and often result in life-long complications for the patient. While some birth defects associated with Depakote are treatable, others will stay with the child throughout his or her life, which can be extremely expensive to treat and maintain. Birth defects linked with Depakote use during pregnancy include:

  • Anencephaly
  • Spina bifida
  • Impaired cognitive development
  • Hydroencephaly
  • Aortic stenosis
  • Tetralogy of Fallot
  • Cleft lip / cleft palate
  • Facial dysmorphism
  • Hypospadias
  • Scoliosis
  • Syndactyly
  • Club foot/club fingers/club hand
  • Abnormal digits
  • Craniostenosis

While treatment options for these defects are often very expensive, financial compensation may be available to you if your child has suffered a birth defect as a result of being exposed to Depakote while in the womb.
