Study: Fetuses exposed to valporate nearly three times more likely to develop Autism

A new study released shows that if epilepsy medication with the valporate ingredient is used during pregnancy, these children are three times more likely to develop autism spectrum disorder than other children.

Denmark researchers studied 656,000 children that were born in the country between 1996 and 2006. The women in the study filled prescriptions for a valporate medication before and during the pregnancy.

Out of the children studied, researchers identified those who were diagnosed with Autism and after taking other risk factors into account, it was determined that those exposed to these medications in the womb were 2.6 times more likely to develop varying degrees of Autism spectrum disorder.

If you or a loved one has a valporate medication such as Depakote during pregnancy and your child was diagnosed with Autism, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
