FDA warns that cognitive impairment may be caused by use of Depakote during pregnancy

The Food and Drug Administration has sent out a warning that the use of Depakote and other valproate-based drugs during pregnancy may increase the risk that their child will be born with impaired cognitive development.

The FDA issued the new warning on June 30, 2011 after the FDA did a study on mothers who took Depakote as a anti-seizure medication and mothers who used other anti0seizure medications.

The results showed that the children whose mothers were prescribed Depakote scored lower on cognitive tests than did children whose mother’s did not. The warning adds that women who do not stop taking Depakote could face serious problems. This new warning must now be added to the label for Depakote and its generic versions.

If you or a loved one has used Depakote and your child has suffered as result of it, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.
