Depacon Lawsuit Attorney

Depakote and its many generic alternatives, including Depacon, are all used for the treatment of manic episodes of bipolar disorder, seizures, and also migraine headaches. All forms of the drug utilize valproic acid as the active ingredient, but they can differ in regards to method of administration. Depacon is the intravenous alternative of Depakote for people who cannot take the other forms of valproic acid.

Unfortunately, women who take Depacon or other forms of valproic acid while pregnant risk a high chance of giving birth to a child with developmental defects, such as cleft lips and palates, syndactyly, and aortic stenosis. If you or a loved one took a Depacon or while pregnant and gave birth to a child who suffers from birth defects, call the Depakote lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for a free consultation.

Risks of Depacon Use

Depacon is different from Depakote in that it is injected intravenously, or directly into the veins. This method of valproic acid administration is meant for people who cannot take the oral equivalents of Depacon. Frustratingly, no matter the form of valproic acid a person uses, it can still lead to serious birth defects for any unborn children.

Besides the risk of birth defects, there are many other problems that can arise due to using a needle to administer a drug. For instance, improper sterilization of the needle can allow you to develop infections. Also, an unclean needle can transfer diseases such as hepatitis C.
