Serious Depakote side effects that may require immediate medical attention

Patients who are taking Depakote to treat epilepsy or bipolar disorder are advised to notify their physicians if they believe that they are suffering from the following serious symptoms linked to the anti-seizure drug.

  • Presence of blood in urine or unusual decrease in frequency of urination
  • Any bleeding symptoms, such as getting bruised easily
  • Skin problems like pain, discoloration, or rashes
  • Unusual weakness including body aches or dizziness
  • Any symptoms similar to flu
  • Eye problems
  • Mental problems, such as depression, or a desire to self-harm

While the above mentioned are some of the more serious side effects linked to Depakote, patients are still advised to seek medical attention if they are experiencing other health problems. Patients may also notify the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the adverse side effects of Depakote.

Another common aftereffect of Depakote occurs in babies whose mothers were prescribed the drug during pregnancy. Often, these infants are born with serious birth defects that affect them for life. At Williams Hart, our pharmaceutical lawyers are prepared to help families who have been affected by this dangerous drug recover compensation for their suffering.
