Depakote lawsuit filed over birth defects

The makers of Depakote, Abbott Laboratories, have been sued by the families of 40 children who suffered birth defects after their mother’s were prescribed Depakote during pregnancy.

Birth defects that are alleged in the lawsuits are Spina bifida and other neural tube malformations. This lawsuit was filed in St. Clair Court earlier this month.

The suit states that the manufacturers failed to fully research potential side effects that could happen when women took the drug while pregnant, especially in the first trimester of the pregnancy. Depakote was approved in 1978 for the treatment of epilepsy and bipolar disorder.
