At least three dozen minors recently filed a federal lawsuit against drug giant Abbot for the Depakote their mothers took during pregnancy.
The plaintiffs claimed in their complaint that they suffered physical harm as a result of their mothers’ use of the anti-epileptic drug Depakote during pregnancy. According to the lawsuit, Depakote “ was defectively designed, inadequately tested, dangerous to human health and unborn, and lacked proper warnings as to the true danger associated with its use.” The plaintiffs claim that they were born with birth defects like “spina bifida, heart defects, and neural tube defects” as a result of the use of Depakote during pregnancy.
