Twenty-six women file Depakote lawsuit

According to a recent lawsuit that has been filed, an anti-convulsant ingested by pregnant woman, Depakote, has allegedly caused severe birth defects on their babies.

The lead plaintiff and 25 other woman filed the lawsuit on Jan. 18 against the makers of Depakote, Abott Laboratories. In December, nearly two dozen woman were involved in a similar suit.

The recent lawsuit states that the woman ingested Depakote during their pregnancy and their babies suffered defects including heart problems and spina bifida. Many woman are unaware of the potential side effects that can occur if taken while they are pregnant because the company only includes vague warnings about the complications that can occur.

Depakote is commonly used to treat epilepsy, bipolar disorder, depression and chronic pain conditions, but can cause severe birth defects if taken in the first trimester.
