FDA Safety Announcement on Topamax and Pregnancy

The FDA recently issued a safety announcement for the prescription drug Topamax, concerning the risk of birth defects when taken by pregnant women.

The law office of personal injury lawyers O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath would like to alert parents of children born with a cleft palate or related birth defects that the birth defect might not be their fault, instead it could be the result of known side effects of the drug Topamax if the mother took the prescription medication during the first trimester - a period when the mother may not even have known yet that she was pregnant.

If you feel that the prescription medication Topamax might have been responsible for your child being born with a birth defect the law office of O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath would like to invite you to contact them for a free Topamax lawsuit consultation:

Note that in their safety announcement the FDA stated that there are cases where the risks of taking Topamax, and other topiramates, by pregnant women may be acceptable due to the specific benefits of the drug in the treatment of epileptic seizures.
