If you took Topamax® (topiramate), or any generic version, while pregnant and now have a child with cleft lip and/or cleft palate, you and your child may be entitled to substantial compensation with the help of a Topamax lawyer.
According to new data from the FDA, taking Topamax, particularly during the first trimester of pregnancy, increases the chance that your child may be born with cleft lip or cleft palate and will have a Topamax birth injury. With the new data proving the dangers of taking Topamax during pregnancy, stronger warning labels are now required. Topamax has been prescribed to treat seizures resulting from epilepsy and for the prevention of migraine headaches.
How Topamax Birth Defects Affect you and your Child's Life
An oral birth defect means that your baby has a cleft palate and/or a cleft lip, which are deformities. The Topamax birth defect can be as small as a notch in the lip or significant enough to be a complete rift running into the roof of the mouth and nose. Topamax birth injury can cause problems with speech and feeding, and can make your child more prone to recurrent ear infections, making development difficult. In most cases, surgery will be required to close your child's cleft lip and/or palate.
