History of Depakote

Depakote is produced by Abbott Laboratories and was first released on the market in 1983 to treat epilepsy and bipolar disorder. For over 1o years the Food and Drug Administration has warned the makers of the drug to make the side effects of the drug, whether mild or severe, known to patients.

In September 2000, the FDA required that a black box warning be put on the medication because it may cause severe pancreatitis. In 2007, the FDA issued a second alert in order to warn pregnant mothers of birth defects that can occur if Depakote is taken duringĀ  pregnancy.

Although there are issues with the drug, it has become the most popular medication in the U.S. for treating the manic phase of bipolar disorder.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious side effects or birth defects from the use of Depakote, contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.
