Children’s cognitive development and Depakote use

When a woman becomes pregnant or is trying to become pregnant and they are taking anti-seizure medication, such as Depakote, it is important to speak to a doctor about your options.

Multiple birth defects have been associated with the use of Depakote during pregnancy. The most recent warning from the FDA about the use of Depakote is that the children may suffer cognitive impairment if their mother’s were prescribed this during pregnancy.

In the U.S. alone, there are more than 25,000 babies born a year to mothers who are taking medication for epilepsy. The impaired development is shown in understanding concepts, problem solving, information processing, and IQ tests.

If you or a loved one’s child was born with a birth defect after you were prescribed Depakote while pregnant, contact the Depakote lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187 today.
